REPORTS AND COMMUNICATIONS FROM CITY OFFICERS. 



Referred — Executive Budget for Year 1959. 

John C. Marcin, City Clerk, transmitted the Execu- 
tive Budget for the year 1959, submitted to the City 
Council by Honorable Richard J. Daley, Mayor (by 
filing with the City Clerk) on October 31, 1958; which 
was Referred to the Committee on Finance. 



Referred — Mayor's 1959 Budget Message 

Honorable Richard J. Daley, Mayor, read to the 
City Council the following communication, which was, 
on motion of Alderman Keane (seconded by Alder- 
man Despres ) , ordered published and Referred to the 
Committee on Finance: 

To the Honorable, The City Council of the City of 
Chicago : 

November 7, 1958. 

Gentlemen — The executive budget of the City of 
Chicago for the calendar year of 1959 was filed with 
the City Clerk on October 31st. 

In my inaugural address in 1955, I stated to the 
people of Chicago the policy we would follow, as- 
serting: "I do not believe that the purpose of gov- 
ernment is to provide vital services at the minimum 
— we must take first things first. We must con- 
centrate our efforts on city services which are 
essential to keep the people of Chicago the healthi- 
est, best protected, and most prosperous in the 
nation." 

The record speaks for itself. Together — the mem- 
bers of the City Council and the City Administra- 
tion — have carried forward a continuous program 
of expanding and improving the vital housekeeping 
services of police, fire, sanitation, recreations, 
health, and building inspection ... of speeding up 
public works ... of coordination and better plan- 
ning of physical improvements . . . and of institut- 
ing new techniques . . . training programs and 
procedures leading to greater economy and effi- 
ciency. 

All of the additional revenues that the City has 
received in the past three years have gone directly 
into this program. 

The executive budget for 1959 calls for a total 
appropriation for all funds — including loss and cost 
for the collection of taxes— of $559,217,874 com- 
pared to $574,780396 for 1958— a decrease of 
$15,562,522. 



A municipal budget is more than merely a mass 
of figures and tables. It must reflect what has been 
accomplished in previous budgets. It must present 
a sound and workable program. 

This is my fourth budget as chief executive and 
it carries forth the policy, the program and the 
performance of this administration that has been 
put into effect during the past three years. 

The Classification and Compensation Plan 

In 1958 we initiated a program essential to better 
government — a modern equitable classification of 
positions and a modern compensation plan devel- 
oped by an outstanding municipal consultant, to 
provide more economical personnel services for the 
City and assure equitable salaries for city em- 
ployees. 

The adoption of this plan by the City Council and 
the passage of an ordinance putting it into effect 
would be hailed as one of the most progressive 
steps that any City Council has taken to better 
Chicago government. 

The classification and compensation plan will 
result in tax reduction, will promote greater effi- 
ciency, and will reduce as far as possible the many 
inequities that have developed over the years in 
the classification and pay of employees. The adop- 
tion of the plan will establish salary schedules for 
the various classifications based on cost of livmg 
in the Chicago area, prevailing salaries, and the 
nature and responsibility of the positions. The 
plan provides for like pay for like work. The plan 
establishes a sound and equitable personnel policy 
throughout the city services. 

It will encourage qualified men and women to 
seek careers in city service. It will reduce turnover. 
A longevity provision in the plan assures recogni- 
tion for long and faithful service to the city. It 
will simplify budgeting of personnel services m 
all departments. 

The classification and wage and salary plan is 
based on an exhaustive survey which covered the 
practices of industries and companies employing 
many thousands of employees, as well as compar- 
able cities in the Nation. In 1958 the wage schedule 
and classification plan was reviewed in the light of 
current economic conditions. All of the salary in- 
creases recommended in the 1959 budget adhere 
strictly to the wage schedule and are recommended 
by the consultant because of increased living costs 
The budget provides an appropriation which will 
give a two to five percent increase to those non- 
union employees who qualify under the plan. Fol- 
lowing the established practice of the City, union

employees will receive the prevailing union wage 
rate. 

The appropriation for the classification and com- 
pensation plan, additional personnel for fire, health, 
and building departments, courts and other govern- 
ment agencies, is $6,462,000. Of this, approximately 
90% is for the classification and compensation plan. 

I sincerely hope that this council will adopt the 
classification and compensation plan. 

The Police Department 

Since 1955' more than 2,000 men have been added 
to our police force. Eighty percent of these have 
been assigned to the neighborhood districts. Twenty 
percent have been assigned to augment the traffic 
division. 

We have placed special emphasis on expanding 
and improving the department's Youth Division. 
It has been expanded from eighty officers, to 232, 
including twenty policewomen. They are receiving 
special training, by authorities in the field of Juve- 
nile Welfare, and many of them are taking special 
College courses in this category. The philosophy 
of the division is to deter youthful waywardness — 
to help young people avoid delinquency — rather 
than to merely make a record of arrests. 

Two years ago a new and unprecedented offensive 
against crime was initiated with the creation of a 
special, fast-moving, hard-hitting Task Force. This 
unit is assigned to unannounced, various neighbor- 
hoods areas, and is doing much to not only appre- 
hend wrongdoers, but, more important, to prevent 
crime. The figures show dramatically how this 
operation suppresses crime. The daily police reports 
show substantial reductions in many types of crime 
due to this operation. 

This unit has made 2,989 arrests in the last two 
and one-half years. More than two-thirds of these 
arrests have been for the possession of concealed 
weapons. — guns and knives — that might have been 
used on innocent victims. The Task Force has made 
279 narcotic arrests and confiscated more than 
$500,000 worth of drugs. 

The new budget provides funds for the addition 
of thirty new Task Force patrolmen. This will 
enable the operation to be expanded to cover three 
neighborhoods daily, instead of two. 

The Traffic Enforcement Program has made an 
enviable record in saving lives. For six consecutive 
years the number of fatalities from traffic accidents 
has been reduced. Chicago is the only major city 
in the Nation that can boast of such a record. 

For the period ending November 3, there were 
242 fatalities, compared to 259 during the same 
period last year — a reduction of seventeen. The 
City has received numerous awards for its traffic 
program. 

Since 1955 we have more than doubled the num- 
ber of 3-wheel motorcycles, thus bringing greatly 
increased mobility to our patrol forces. 

More than 50% of our automobile vehicles are 
equipped with FM radios and nearly 30% of our 
3-wheel motorcycles have this 2-way modern equip- 
ment. 

By the end of this year, Chicago's police force 
will have the finest police radio communication 
system in the Nation. 

On January 1' 1959, 1,025 uniformed officers and 
men of the Chicago Park district, and 100 crossing 
guards and clerical workers, will be transferred to 
the Chicago Police Department under the consolida- 



tion plan. This will bring the department's total 
working police strength to its highest level — 10,542. 

Additional manpower and equipment are essen- 
tial to the performance of the Police Department, 
but equally important, is the further building of 
morale and incentive. 

In 1955, the Chicago Police Department ranked 
about twelfth among major cities in salaries. With 
the increases provided for 1959, the department 
will rank in the forefront of the major cities of the 
nation. 

I would like to point out, in this connection, that 
the working hours of the force have been reduced 
from forty-eight to forty per week since 1955. 

The 1959 budget proposes salary increases for 
patrolmen ranging from the minimum pay of $4800 
to $5,640. 

The 1959 budget appropriates $67,869,000 for 
the Police Department — an increase of $8,771,000. 
Approximately 60 percent of this is necessitated 
by the addition of Park District Police, with the 
remainder made up of salaries for the thirty new 
task patrolmen, and wage adjustments. 

This City Council has unfailingly supported the 
vast improvements made in this vital city service. 
It has provided the people of Chicago with the 
finest Police Department in the nation. 

The Fire Department 

In 1955 our Fire Department was undermanned 
and understaffed, and was further handicapped by 
much antiquated apparatus. 

In the past three years, eight hundred men were 
added' bringing the total personnel to 4,476. With 
the provision of new fire-fighting apparatus, and 
the installation of the most modern of communica- 
tion systems, the Department is the best in the 
country. 

Fire prevention has been increasingly emphasized 
during the past years. The Department's prevention 
program has reached into every neighborhood in 
the City. 

In 1958 alone, firemen inspected 125,000 resi- 
dences, and helped to eliminate fire hazards in 
22,000 business establisJiments. This is a coopera- 
tive program, and in most instances on-the-spot 
corrections were made. 

Prevention will be increasingly emphasized in 
1959, with fifty new lieutenants assigned to this 
essential program. 

Three years ago, the City had only thirteen 
ambulances to serve the millions of our people. 
Today, we have nineteen modern vehicles which 
will have responded to 12,000 more emergency calls 
in 1958. 

Like our Police Department, our fire-fighters were 
grossly underpaid three years ago. Department 
salaries have been brought up to decent living 
standards. 

The increase in the Fire Department appropria- 
tion provides for salary increases totaling $1,327,- 
542 for the employment of fifty additional firemen, 
and $100,000 for demolition of fire-damaged build- 
ings endangering public safety. 

A new department of arson will provide highly 
skilled investigators working around the clock. 

Department of Buildings 

The past three years have seen outstanding ac- 
complishments by our Building Department.

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCII^-CHICAGO 



November 7, 1958 



The adoption of the Housing Code in 1956, and 
of the comprehensive Zoning Ordinance in 1957, 
have promoted the stability necessary to ordered 
growth and the protection of our homes and busi- 
nesses. 

In addition, codes regulating swimming pools, 
elevators, parking facilities, and nursing homes 
have been enacted. These and more than two hun- 
dred other amendments to our building code ap- 
proved by our Citizens Advisory Committee have 
opened the door to greater neighborhood and in- 
dustrial improvements. 

The Building and Law Departments instituted 
new procedures to make these new standards effec- 
tive and to secure more complete observance of all 
the laws concerning the health and safety of our 
people. 

The new registration ordinance adopted by the 
City Council is enabling the Building Department 
to legally serve owners who have evaded compliance 
by hiding behind land trusts. 

Last year, the Building Department initiated a 
program of Task Force inspections of dangerous 
buildings by teams from the building, health, fire 
and law departments. 

In the first nine months of this year task force 
teams have inspected more than one thousand 
buildings. As a result of this program, thousands 
of buildings are being rehabilitated by owners who 
realize the City's determination to enforce proper 
and safe living standards for all. 

This year, the Department will be able to de- 
molish one hundred and eighteen dangerous build- 
ings as compared to seventy-eight in 1955. 

The ordinance requiring sprinkling systems 
passed by the City Council January 1, 1956, has 
been adopted by all cubicle hotels. We also estab- 
lished night hotel inspections by the Fire Depart- 
ment. In 1954 there were eight fire fatalities. In 
1955 there were 42 deaths occurring in this type 
of hotel. Since the passage of the ordinance there 
have been none. 

To carry out these added activities and to con- 
tinually raise standards the Department has added 
fifty-eight inspectors. The proposed increased ap- 
propriation of $346,896 is to provide for wage ad- 
justments, and the employment of twenty additional 
building inspectors, and five clerical workers. 

The City Council's continuing concern with build- 
ing and housing problems is resulting in the arrest 
of blight, the elimination of sub-standard struc- 
tures, and the saving of many lives. 

Department of Health 

Since 1955 we have greatly expanded the services 
of our Health Department. We have increased the 
inspection of food handling; we have expanded 
infant welfare services; and by the end of 1958, 
the Board expects to provide dental treatment for 
150,000 of our young people compared to 94,000 
in 1955. 

We have instituted more rigid tuberculosis con- 
trol and undertaken inspection of many new areas 
of public health. 

The great polio inoculation program in 1956 
showed its effectiveness in saving many lives and 
preventing widespread crippling illness. In 1956 
there were 1,111 cases and 36 deaths. This was 
reduced to 23 cases and 3 deaths in 1957; and 15 
cases and 2 deaths as of October 31st of this year. 



The Department has established the first munici- 
pal heart control center in the nation — it has begun 
a nutrition service to help institutions caring for 
the aged — and has expanded its mental hygiene 
program. It is conducting a research program of 
the control of hayfever — the first of its kind to be 
initiated by any metropolitan health agency. 

Another measure which affects the health of 
every family was adopted in 1956, when the City's 
water supply was fluoridated. 

A new pilot health center, to be located at 1000 
Lytle Street, will consolidate the following health 
programs in one location: pre-natal and infant 
care; dental treatment; preventive disease inocula- 
tions ; mental hygiene consultations ; and nutritional 
guidance diagnoses. 

This center will bring the services of the depart- 
ment directly to the neighborhoods. 

The expansion of existing health services by the 
Board of Health — the creation of a new district 
health center — as well as general salary adjust- 
ments raise the 1959 appropriation of the Board 
of Health by $275,453. 

The Department of Streets and Sanitation 

Street cleaning, street paving, street lighting, 
refuse removal and disposal, are among the most 
vital — and most costly — of services rendered by 
local government, and in no area of activity has 
greater improvement been shown during the past 
three years. 

The statistics for the period are most impressive, 
reflecting the accomplishments made possible by 
a determination to bring the performance of these 
services to the highest possible level. 

Since 1955, we have done much to make our 
streets and alleys cleaner by expanding and im- 
proving the Department of Streets and Sanitation. 

There are now four times as many sweepers in 
the city service as there were in 1954 — working 
day in and day out in every neighborhood of the 
city. 

In 1958, more than 144,000 miles of streets will 
be swept by mechanical sweepers, compared to 
34,000 curb miles in 1954. In addition, 221,000 more 
miles will have been hand-swept. 

15,000 more litter baskets have been placed on 
streets throughout the city than were in service 
three years ago. 

Every block in Chicago now receives more rapid 
garbage collection service, and approximately 500 
blocks now receive service twice weekly. 

A special unit of the building, sanitation and 
health departments was created in 1956 to eliminate 
imsightly shacks and clean littered lots. In 1958, 
this unit has demolished more than 400 dilapidated 
sheds, garages, and other buildings, and cleaned 
and leveled several hundred lots. 

Throughout the city, men and women have parti- 
cipated in many different activities of the Clean-up 
Committee. Some have joined with their neighbors 
in block projects to improve their yards, lawns, and 
alleys. Hundreds of women have gone from door to 
door, and from store to store, to ask cooperation 
in keeping sidewalks and walks clean. 

Nothing has done so much to preserve the vitality 
and appearance of the neighborhoods and the city 
in which we live. 

In 1954, modern lights were installed on thirty- 
three miles of arterial streets and on fifty-two miles 
of our residential streets.

In 1958, 620 miles of residential and arterial 
streets will have modern lighting. By the end of 
this year seventy-five percent of the city will have 
been re-lighted. In 1959, ninety percent of the en- 
tire city will be equipped with modern street lights. 
Chicago is now the best lighted major city in the 
nation. 

An increase of $2,200,000 is appropriated for the 
Department of Streets and Sanitation, primarily 
for the Bureau of Sanitation and Bureau of Elec- 
tricity. Most of the increase is necessitated by wage 
adjustments and for the cost of maintaining the 
street lights of the park district. 

Civil Service Commission 

The scope of the civil service program was sub- 
stantially expanded and strengthened during 1958. 

Every effort was made to afford equal opportu- 
nity to all qualified residents of Chicago to par- 
ticipate in public life. 

By the end of this year, the Commission will 
have conducted approximately 150 examinations — 
an increase of eighty-six examinations over 1957. 

These examinations are being rendered ever more 
equitable by an organized research program to help 
refine and validate testing techniques. 

The classification division of the Commission 
worked tirelessly toward preparing, reviewing, and 
up-dating the new classification plan for inclusion 
in the 1^59 appropriation ordinance. 

Title recommendations were reviewed with the 
various department heads and agreements were 
reached on titles to be included in the 1959 budget. 
Several hundred positions not previously examined 
were reviewed and classified in accordance with the 
new classification plans. Rules for the administra- 
tion of the new classification plan have been pre- 
pared and adopted. 

In 1959, the division will be concerned with ob- 
taining agreement for changes to recommended 
titles wherever possible from employees having 
Civil Service status. 

Work will continue on the implementation and 
refinement of the new classification plan. 

Parks and Recreation 

In the past three years, new directors were added 
to supervise activities on our playgrounds and 
beaches. During this period additional playgrounds, 
swimming pools, and basketball courts were built 
throughout the city. 

These activities are now being transferred to the 
Park District under the consolidation plan. Our 
wonderful system of parks, playgrounds, beaches 
and other recreational facilities will now be ad- 
ministered by one agency devoted to the recreation 
of our children and the leisure-time activities of 
our citizens. 

To provide essential services other than police, 
will call for an expenditure of $1,700,000. It must 
be remembered, however, that revenues from the 
Park District and the reduction of activities by the 
city will yield to the city more than $6,000,000. 

Board of Election Commissioners 

In 1959 there will be three elections, and one 
city-wide registration of voters will be conducted. 
Two of the elections will be confined to city offices. 
The county will not share in their cost. An appro- 
priation of $4,551,982 is provided for these elec- 
tions — an increase of $1,014,800 over 1958. 



Commission on Youth Welfare 

The Commission on Youth Welfare was created 
after a two-year study by a 115-member civic 
committee composed of experts from every field of 
youth work in public and voluntary agencies and 
institutions. The Commission will carry out a com- 
prehensive program of youth welfare utilizing 
agencies engaged in providing services or facilities 
to the youtn of Chicago. It will develop a program 
aided by neighborhood volunteers and professional 
youth workers, in a coordinated city-wide effort 
to detect and prevent juvenile delinquency. 

The Commission will begin its far-reaching neigh- 
borhood program in five community areas. 

The 1959 budget appropriates $250,000 for this 
program, so essential to the welfare of the people 
of Chicago. 

Real Estate Taxes 

We have done everything possible to avoid in- 
creasing the city's real estate tax and appropria- 
tions for departments have been increased little, if 
any, for purposes other than the compensation plan. 

The 1959 corporate budget totals $182,054,346, 
as compared to $165,986,954 — an increase of 
$16,067,392 to effectuate these vitally important 
improvements and administrative changes. 

The appropriation of $6,300,000 for the park con- 
solidation program is an accepted obligation. The 
appropriations of $1,014,800 for the Board of Elec- 
tion Commissioners and $990,430 for loss and cost 
in collections of taxes are mandatory. These items 
represent 52 percent of the increased appropriation 
for the corporate fund. 

The remainder is primarily for the classification 
and compensation plan and personnel for fire, 
health, building, courts and Commission on Youth 
Welfare. 

To carry out these essential programs, it will be 
necessary to increase the corporate tax levy by 
approximately 13 cents per $100 of valuation. It is 
not now possible to determine what effect this 
increase will have on the total tax bill until the 
new valuation and bond abatements are known. 
However, the tax levy for the Park District will 
be reduced because of the realignment of services 
between the Park District and the City. 

Administrative Improvements 

In the past three years the City Council has 
approved far-reaching measures that have done 
much to improve city government. These include 
the adoption of the home rule recommendations, 
including the executive performance budget, the 
creation of the Department of Inquiry and Informa- 
tion, reorganization of the City Planning Depart- 
ment, adoption of a new housing code, and a new 
comprehensive zoning ordinance and many other 
improvements. 

In continuation of this policy we are recommend- 
ing the creation of new city departments. 

Department of Aviation 

With the tremendous growth in aviation and the 
imminent increase in air travel, because of the 
arrival of the jet age, a new Department of Avia- 
tion is recommended. 

Chicago is already the acknowledged aviation 
crossroads of the nation, and with the arrival of 
the jet age our city will become the aviation cross- 
roads of the world. To make certain of our con- 
tinued leadership we are developing O'Hare

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



November 7, 1958 



International Airfield as the most modern and best- 
equipped facility in the nation. 

Today we are presenting to the City Council for 
approval an ordinance which will make O'Hare 
Field the first self-supporting airport in the country. 

With the passing of this ordinance we will have 
a one hundred twenty million dollar building pro- 
gram at O'Hare Field without cost to the taxpayer. 
With this tremendous growth in our airport ac- 
commodations and with the increase in air travel 
because of the arrival of the jet age, it has become 
obvious that a new department of aviation should 
be created to administer our three municipal air- 
ports. All of the personnel of the new department 
will be transferred from the Department of Public 
Works. 

Department of the Port of Chicago 

No city on the Great Lakes is carrying on a 
greater port program than our city. The Chicago 
regional port district has completed its first phase 
at Lake Calumet, and this facility is now among 
the most modern in the nation. Navy Pier is being 
readied for the opening of the St. Lawrence seaway. 
A contract for the widening of Navy Pier to pro- 
vide two additional berths for ocean-going deep- 
draft vessels is under way. A second contract for 
transit sheds on the widened pier will be let m 
1959 and rehabilitation work on the existing pier 
will also be accomplished. All of this work will be 
completed in time for the next shipping season. 

The administration of the Port of Chicago calls 
for a new department charged solely with all mat- 
ters relating to the port and its rivers, wharves and 
harbor facilities, with personnel transferred from 
the Department of Pubhc Works. 

Calumet Skyway 

The Calumet Skyway Toll Bridge, which was 
completed and opened to traffic in the spring of 
1958, is being transferred to the Department of 
Streets and Sanitation. 

It is felt that because of the common problems 
of maintenance and operation of the skyway and 
city streets that this operation will be more effi- 
cient and economical. 

The Department of Streets and Sanitation has 
similar activities in its street cleaning, street main- 
tenance, snow and ice control, and parking facility 
operation. 

The Department has jurisdiction over parking 
meters. 

Capital Improvements Program 

1958 was one of the greatest construction years 
in Chicago's history. Construction activity was 
started over the entire length of the northwest 
route expressway. Overpass bridges crossing this 
expressway at Van Buren and Lake streets were 
completed and the first section of the Superhigh- 
way, from Congress to Madison street, will be 
opened this month. In preparation for construction 
next year, property was acquired, buildings demol- 
ished, and plans prepared for the south route ex- 
pressway. 

The Calumet Skyway Toll Bridge linking the 
Indiana Toll Road with the new Michigan-Indiana 
one-way street system was completed and opened 
to traffic last spring. 

The extension of the CTA in Congress Street — 
which connects with the Milwaukee-Dearborn sub- 
way — was completed in June. This is the first rapid 



transit facility utilizing the median strip of a super- 
highway. 

During the year, a new bascule bridge over the 
Calumet River at 95th street was opened to traffic. 
A through-lane overpass which carries through 
traffic over the Archer-Ashland intersection was 
also completed. 

A newly completed railroad grade separation at 
40th and Ashland eliminated a serious traffic bottle- 
neck and safety hazard. Work on a railroad grade 
separation at Lincoln and Addison is nearmg com- 
pletion. Work has also been started on a new bridge 
over the Chicago river at Harrison street. 

Twenty-three new parking lots and two parking 
garages will have been completed and placed in 
operation by the end of the year. 

Fifteen miles of new trunk sewers have been 
placed under contract in 1958, and fourteen miles 
of sewers previously under construction have been 
completed. 

Contracts valued at $20-million dollars will have 
been awarded by the year's end on the Central 
District Filtration Plant. The filter substructure 
contract and the North Side water tunnel connec- 
tions are nearing completion. Substantial progress 
has also been made on the 79th street tunnel and 
on the installation of additional equipment to mod- 
ernize and improve the efficiency of eight pumping 
stations. 

The last major contract for the construction of 
the Municipal Heating Plant will be placed under 
contract by the end of the year and the plant will 
be completed in 1959. 

The widening and extension of Hollywood boule- 
vard from Lake Shore drive to Ridge avenue was 
completed and provides an important link carrying 
outer drive traffic to the west. 

Work is under way on a contract for the widening 
of Navy Pier to provide space for two additional 
deep-draft berths for ocean-going vessels. 

Four new beach sites on the North Shore have 
been cleared and improved. Work is under way on 
a new dressing building for Austin pool . . . twenty- 
one basketball courts, flood-lighting on fifteen play- 
grounds, and Rainbow Beach shore protection and 
parking area. Contracts for improvement of three 
new playgrounds ... six playlots . . .and two 
swimming pools will have been awarded by the 
end of the year. 

New City Council chambers were completed last 
spring six new City Hall elevators were in- 

stalled, and installation of three more are under 
way- 
Work was started on two ward yard buildings 
a new medical building at the House of Cor- 
rection . . . and two new fire stations. Work will 
soon be under way on two new police stations. Plans 
are being completed for a new fire academy, which 
will be under construction early next year The 
Calumet incinerator will be completed in December 
and plans for another incinerator are m preparation. 
Our program to serve all the people of Chicago 
could not be fulfilled unless we expanded those 
services and activities that meet the personal and 
human problems dealing with the welfare of the 
people. 

The Commission on Human Relations has made 
real contributions in dealing with the most difficult 
problems in racial relations — in creating an atmos- 
phere of understanding and tolerance among our 
people.

They have expanded their activities with a new- 
comers program — to help the thousands of new 
workers and their famihes who come to Chicago 
each year. 

The number of our elderly people is steadily in- 
creasing. To provide a program for them so that 
they may lead lives of activity and usefulness, the 
Commission on Senior Citizens — composed of men 
and women who are expert in this field — have de- 
veloped a program of aiding and coordinating the 
work of existing agencies and helping to expand 
their activities. 

The Chicago Alcoholic Treatment Center — the 
first such center to be completely supported by a 
municipality — has done wonderful work in reha- 
bilitating those persons who can be assisted back 
to normal life through medical and psychiatric 
help. 

The budget provides an appropriation to double 
the number of beds in this institution from thirty- 
six to seventy-two. 

The record of the City Administration in the 
past three years could not have been accomplished 
without the hard work of the Department Heads, 
who have unhesitatingly put in thousands of extra 
hours to better the services of the city. 

To them and to all of the city employees who 
have worked as a team in the service of the city — 
my heartfelt thanks and appreciation. 

The progress of the past three years could not 
have been achieved without the wise judgment and 
the hard work of the City Council. As I look back 
upon the three years that I have served as Mayor 
of Chicago — one impression prevails above all oth- 
ers — the dedication of every member of this City 
Council to all the people of Chicago. 

Yesterday, the major conclusions of a three-year 
study of the economy of the Chicago area was re- 
leased by the University of Chicago. All of the 
people of this metropolitan area can take pride in 
the great story of achievement it reveals . . . that 
the average Chicago area resident works harder 
. . . produces more . . . earns more . . . and saves 
more of what he earns . . . than the residents of any 
other area in the country. 

As representatives of the people, we only reflect 
this vitality and strength of the citizens of Chicago. 
The people are the source of our growth and prog- 
ress. 

That's why the City Council and the City Ad- 
ministration will never be content, but will be con- 
stantly working to improve our local government 
and the services it provides. 

Very truly yours, 

(Signed) Richard J. Daley, 

Mayor.

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



November 7, 1958 



In a verbal statement to the City Council the Mayor 
expressed his commendation of John C. Melaniphy, 
Corporation Counsel for the ability and patience he 
displayed in the O'Hare Field negotiations with the 
airline companies, and for the endless amount of 
energy and time he devoted to the task. The Mayor 
stated further that similar commendation was due to 
Carl H. Chatters, City Comptroller, George De Ment, 
Commissioner of Public Works, and Wm. E. Downes, 
Jr., Director of Airports. 

The following is the memorandum of the Corpora- 
tion Counsel referred to in the foregoing communica- 
tion: 

Memorandum Prepared by the Corporation 
Counsel for use in Considering the Pro- 
posed Ordinance and the Proposed 
Agreements Relating to O'Hare Field^ 
Chicago International Airport. 

Ordinance. 
The ordinance proposes to authorize the issuance 
of $120,000,000 in revenue bonds to be paid solely 
out of revenues of Chicago-O'Hare International 
Airport for the purpose of improving said Airport, 
in accordance with the plans and specifications 
(general in nature) to be filed with the City Clerk. 

The authority for the issuance of such bonds is 
contained in Sections 22-3 through 22-12 of Article 
XXII of Chapter 24, Illinois Revised Statutes, 1957. 

Article I contains the definitions of the various 
terms that are used throughout the ordinance. 

Article II provides for the authorization of the 
issuance of such Bond Issue, the form of the bonds 
and provisions for the execution, exchange and 
registration of the bonds. Each bond has a provi- 
sion that it is payable solely from the net revenues 
derived from the operation of said Airport and for 
any service rendered in the operation thereof and 
is secured by charge and lien on the net revenues, 
as defined in the ordinance, and that neither the 
bonds nor the payment of the principal of the bonds 
or the interest thereon constitutes a debt of the 
City within any constitutional or statutory limita- 
tion and that the taxing power of the City shall 
not be exercised in the payment of either principal 
or interest thereon. The bonds are redeemable at 
the option of the City from time to time through 
the use of moneys in the Sinking Fund Account and 
are redeemable at the option of the City as a whole 
from any source of funds other than revenues and 
that the Comptroller, from funds available, may 
purchase bonds on the open market, provided that 
the sum paid therefor does not exceed the redemp- 
tion price set forth in the bond and in the ordinance. 

The first issuance of bonds for these improve- 
ments are to be made under Section 2.02 of the 
ordinance. If it appears that further funds are 
necessary to complete the project, as determined 
by the plans and specifications on file with the City 
Clerk, such additional bonds shall be issued under 
the provisions of Section 2.15, and in order to 
secure such bonds, the fixed rentals are to be in- 
creased so that there is a coverage of debt service 
of 1.1, giving effect to the amount of bonds issued 
under Sections 2.02 and 2.15. 

If, after the completion of the project by the 
issuance of bonds under Section 2.02 and/or Section 
2.15, as the case may be, the City should desire to 
issue revenue bonds for further improvement of 
the Airport, such additional revenue bonds cannot 
be issued without the consent of the Airline Parties. 



However, the City could cause further improve- 
ments to be made at O'Hare Field by the issuance 
of General Obligation Bonds or moneys appropri- 
ated in the Corporate Funds, in which event, the 
Airlines would be required to pay, in addition to 
the requirements under Sections 2.02 and 2.15 and 
the other provisions in the ordinance relating to 
Flight Fees and deficiency in Flight Fees, the 
amount of interest on such funds and the amortiza- 
tion of the cost of the improvements constructed 
thereby on a straight line basis. 

Article III provides for the disposition and appli- 
cation of the proceeds of the sale of the revenue 
bonds. 

There is established therein the Interest Account 
which will contain an amount sufficient to pay in- 
terest which will accrue and become payable on 
such bonds up to and including January 1, 1962, 
which is capitalizing interest during the period of 
construction. The balance of the proceeds are set 
forth in two separate accounts known as the Han- 
gar Construction Account and the General Con- 
struction Account. The Hangar Construction Ac- 
count will contain a total estimated cost of all 
hangars to be constructed on hangar sites, as shown 
by plans and specifications and estimate of costs 
on file in the Office of the City Clerk. The remaining 
proceeds shall be deposited in the General Con- 
struction Account, which will be used for the pur- 
pose of constructing the project, in accordance with 
the plans and specifications on file. 

In this Article III, the costs of improving the 
Airport are defined. 

Article IV refers to the redemption of the bonds 
in accordance with the provisions thereof. 

Article V refers to rents., fees, rates and other 
charges. Therein, the City covenants that it will 
place in effect rents, fees, rates and other charges 
for the use of the Airport, including services rend- 
ered by the City in the operation thereof, a sufla- 
cient amount which, at all times, will meet the 
requirements (a) for maintenance and operation, 
(b) to provide for the making of required deposits 
to the credit of the Interest Account, (c) to provide 
for the making of required deposits to the credit 
of the Debt Service Account, (d) to provide for the 
making of required deposits to the credit of the 
Sinking Fund Account, (e) to provide for the mak- 
ing of required deposits to the credit of the Reserve 
Maintenance Account, (f ) to provide for the making 
of required deposits to the credit of the Emergency 
Reserve Account, and (g) to provide for the pay- 
ment of premiums on July 1 and January 1 on the 
redemption of and premiums paid on such bonds 
purchased in the open market or by tender, and 
provided further, that as long as the bonds are 
outstanding, such schedule of rents, fees, rates and 
other charges commencing with the fiscal year be- 
ginning January 1, 1962 shall be sufficient to pro- 
duce, together with rents and other available rev- 
enues, net revenues of not less than (1) 1.25 times 
the sum of principal and interest requirements for 
each such fiscal year, plus (2) amounts which may 
be required to be deposited in such year in the 
Reserve Maintenance Account and the Emergency 
Reserve Account. 

Under this Article V, provision is made for the 
establishment of the following accounts: — Interest 
Account, Debt Service Reserve Account, Sinking 
Fund Account, Reserve Maintenance Account and 
Emergency Reserve Account. 

In the Interest Account, there shall be sufficient 
funds deposited to meet the interest payments on 
the bonds as they become due.

COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



8363 



The Debt Service Reserve Account shall contain 
an amount after January 1, 1962 equal to two years' 
interest requirements on all bonds outstanding. 

The amounts to be deposited in the Sinking Fund 
Account starting with January 1, 1965 are set 
forth in the schedule appearing on page 26 of the 
ordinance. 

In the Reserve Maintenance Account, which is 
an account for the purpose of repairing or replac- 
ing major improvements, there shall be deposited 
in any fiscal year up to December 31, 1961, the sum 
of $20,000 and in each fiscal year thereafter, the 
sum of $600,000 until there shall have been ac- 
cumulated in the Reserve Maintenance Account the 
sum of $2,500,000. The moneys used from this Ac- 
count shall be replaced so that there is always the 
sum of $2,500,000. 

The Emergency Reserve Account, which is an 
account made up of (1) interest on the money 
actually invested in the Airport by the City of 
Chicago out of General Obligation Bonds or cor- 
porate appropriations, and (2) the depreciation on 
depreciable items constructed in whole or in part 
with the use of City funds raised by General Obli- 
gation Bonds or appropriated from the Corporate 
Funds. This Emergency Reserve Account will be 
maintained as a cushion against any default in the 
payment of principal or interest due to (1) a tem- 
porary closing of the Airport by any Federal 
agency, the State or any court of competent juris- 
diction, and (2) in the event that the Airport shall 
be closed for the landing or taking-off of all turbo 
jet powered aircraft operated by Airline Parties, 
which at the time are landing or taking-off in the 
course of normal operations at one or more airports 
having facilities similar to those at the Airport, 
but shall not be closed to the landing or taking-off 
of other aricraft operated by Airline Parties while 
any Approved Revenue Bonds are outstanding. In 
the event the Airport is closed, then the payments 
that the Airlines are required to make, as rentals, 
shall abate, but only to the extent that sufficient 
moneys are then held to the credit of the Emer- 
gency Reserve Account under the Revenue Bond 
Ordinance. 

In the event the Airport is closed to turbo jet 
powered aircraft, as above provided, then fifty per 
cent (50%) of the rentals, payable by Airline, shall 
abate for the period of such closing, but in no 
event for more than six months for any single clos- 
ing in any fiscal year to the extent, but only to the 
extent, that sufficient moneys are then held to the 
credit of the Emergency Reserve Account under the 
Revenue Bond Ordinance. 

In the event neither of the foregoing events 
transpire during the period that the bonds are 
outstanding, the funds in the Emergency Reserve 
Account, after payment of such Bond Issue, are to 
be transferred to the City Corporate Fund. 

Article VI provides for equal security and for 
certain insurance policies. 

Article VII provides for the management of the 
Airport. It is provided therein that a Consulting 
Engineer and an Airport Consultant be engaged 
and their respective duties are set forth in this 
Article. 

Article VIII provides for the depositary and pay- 
ing agents in connection with the servicing of the 
Bond Issue and the rights of the holders of the 
bonds upon default. 

Article IX provides that the ordinance can only 
be amended by two-thirds consent of the bond- 



holders and provides for the procedure in connec- 
tion therewith. 

Article X contains miscellaneous provisions pro- 
viding, among others, that the bonds issued pur- 
suant to the ordinance, shall not constitute a debt 
liability or obligation of the City within the mean- 
ing of any constitutional or statutory limitation 
or provision and that such bonds and interest there- 
on shall be payable exclusively from net revenues 
and that the City shall not be required to advance 
any moneys derived from the proceeds of taxes 
collected in the City for the use and benefit of the 
City or from any sources of income other than 
revenues whether for the payment of principal or 
interest on the bonds or for the maintenance and 
operation of the Airport. In other words, the Air- 
port will be self-sustaining. 

In connection with the ordinance and as further 
security to the Revenue Bond Ordinance, the follow- 
ing contracts are to be entered into between the 
Airline Parties and the City of Chicago, to-wit: 

1. Airport Use Agreement 

2. Lease of Terminal Facilities 

3. Hangar and Hangar Site Lease 

4. Joint Cargo Building and Site Lease 

5. Cargo Building and Site Lease with the Fly- 
ing Tiger Line, Inc. 

6. Fueling System Lease. 

The basic principle of the issuance of these bonds 
is that there shall be a coverage of 1.10 of the 
principal and interest requirements, called debt 
service, from the' actual space leased in the various 
buildings and that by the application of the pro- 
visions in the Airport Use Agreement, under which 
Flight Fees are determined, there shall be an overall 
1.25 coverage of the debt service. 

Airport Use Agreement. 

The Airport Use Agreement is patterned after 
the Airport Use Agreement presently in effect with 
such changes and provisions that make it practic- 
able in the paying for maintenance and operation, 
construction of the improvements, meeting the debt 
service requirements and other requirements under 
the Accounts above set forth and for the fixing of 
Flight Fees in each fiscal year and the payment of 
any deficiency at the end of each fiscal year. The 
Flight Fees will be determined by the Airport Con- 
sultant and he will fix a rate to be effective for the 
fiscal year. This rate may be increased or decreased 
on July 1 of any fiscal year depending upon the 
amount of landings in comparison with his original 
estimate. The Airlines have agreed to pay the 
Flight Fee so fixed by the Airport Consultant and 
to pay any deficiency that may arise during any 
fiscal year. It follows, therefore, that the Airport 
will be self-sustaining on a fiscal year basis by 
reason of proceeds from the fixed rentals, conces- 
sions and Flight Fees. 

Article I sets forth the right of the Airline to 
operate at the Airport and defines its rights and 
privileges in the common use area. 

Article II sets forth the Flight Fees for landing 
of aircraft at the Airport. Under this Article, the 
present lease between the City of Chicago and the 
United States Government and the provisions there- 
in are recognized insofar as the free use of the 
Airport by the Federal Government is provided. In 
Section 2.03, the formula for the determination of 
the Flight Fee for each fiscal year is set forth. This 
formula is applied by the Airport Consultant in 



8364 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



November 7, 1958 



making his estimate of the amount of money that 
is necessary to make the Airport self-sustaining 
during the fiscal year. He first determines the 
amount of money that is necessary and then de- 
termines the number of pounds of landing weights 
to be projected during the fiscal year and arrives 
at a rate per thousand pounds, which rate is 
the current rate unless changed. If, on July 1, 
he determines that the income is running over his 
estimates, he can reduce the rate on July 1 and if, 
at the close of the first six months, he determines 
that the income from the landings is not sufficient 
to cover his estimates, he can raise the rate during 
the last six months of the fiscal year. The formula 
for arriving at the Flight Fee rate is the same as 
is presently provided for in the Airport Use Agree- 
ment which was executed in October of 1955. The 
only difference is that while the revenue bonds are 
outstanding, the Flight Fee rate will be paid on 
the estimate rate and not the actual rate. The 
actual rate, of course, will be determined after 
there has been a complete audit of the books for 
the fiscal year. 

In connection with the Flight Fees, it is to be 
noted that the passenger ramp rental, which is 
provided for in the Terminal Facilities Lease, is 
considered an advance payment on Flight Fees to 
be paid by the Airlines. However, the ramp rental, 
as provided for in said leases, is not to be taken 
into consideration by the Airport Consultant in 
determining the amount of Flight Fees that must 
be received in order to fix a Flight Fee rate during 
each fiscal year. However, if the Airlines accumu- 
late Flight Fees payable monthly, there is applied 
against that sum the monthly rental of the pas- 
senger ramp area as a credit thereto. 

Under Article II, a minimum Flight Fee is set 
forth at six cents ($.06) per thousand pounds. 

Article III refers to aircraft parking fees in park- 
ing areas. 

Article IV provides for the payment of fees by 
the Airline Parties in connection with use of the 
Airport and the credit, if any, that the Airlines 
would be entitled to in the event they were over- 
charged Flight Fees by reason of the estimate 
which exceeds the actual rate of Flight Fees that 
there should have been, as evidenced by the audit. 

Article V provides that the term of the Agree- 
ment shall be forty (40) years and it also provides 
that the Airlines covenant during each fiscal year 
that any Approved Revenue Bonds are otustanding, 
to use the Airport and provide for fee landings of 
its aircraft at the Airport, provided, however, that 
if the Airline does not have terminal space at the 
Airport, the above covenant shall be applicable to 
Airline from and after such time as adequate 
building terminal space (or adequate cargo build- 
ing space, if Airline is certificated as a cargo car- 
rier) is made available to it at the Airport. 

Article VI gives the Airline certain rights to 
construct, maintain and repair the communication 
system that it may install and the construction of 
any structures, subject to the approval of the Com- 
missioner of Aviation. 

Article VII provides for the maintenance and 
operation of the Airport by the City, and in this 
connection, the City is to keep the Airport free 
from any obstruction, including the removal of 
snow, vegetation, stones and other foreign matter 
from landing, take-off and other parking areas. 

The provisions in this Article are the same as 
those in the present Airport Use Agreement. 



Article VIII relates to the rules and regulations 
to be promulgated by the Commissioner of Aviation. 

Article IX relates to the exercise by City of gov- 
ernmental functions, wherein, nothing impairs the 
right of the City to exercise its governmental func- 
tions to require Airline to pay any tax on inspec- 
tion fees or to procure necessary permits or licenses. 

Article X relates to indemnity and insurance, 
setting forth the amounts of the various types of 
insurance at the expense of the Airline. 

Article XI relates to books, records and reports 
subject to inspection by the Commissioner of Avia- 
tion and the (5ity Comptroller. 

Article XII relates to termination by the City in 
the event Airline becomes bankrupt or is prevented 
from carrying on an Airline's business by reason 
of any court of competent jurisdiction. 

Article XIII provides for termination by Airline 
after all the Approved Revenue Bonds are paid. 
The provisions of this Article are comparable to 
the provisions in the present Airport Use Agree- 
ment. 

Article XIV gives the right to Airline to remove 
its property after termination of the Agreement. 

Article XV contains definitions, and in connec- 
tion with Section 15.07, defines "Airport Expense", 
and "Flight Fee Revenue Requirements", applicable 
when any Approved Revenue Bonds are outstand- 
ing. In connection with the termination of Flight 
Fees, the provisions set forth in the ordinance are 
more or less repeated under this Article. 

Airport Expense is defined and itemized ; Net Air- 
port Expense is defined and itemized ; Adjusted Net 
Airport Expense, which applies when there are no 
Approved Revenue Bonds outstanding, is defined; 
Government Grants in Aid are defined; Airline 
Parties are defined; Majority in Interest of Air- 
line Parties is defined; Airlines Representative is 
defined; and the terms, Commissioner of Public 
Works and Commissioner of Aviation are defined. 

Article XVI relates to the special provisions 
providing that executed copies of the Airport Use 
Agreement will be deposited in escrow to be re- 
leased subsequent to the sale of the revenue bonds 
and the deposit of the proceeds thereof with the 
Depositary. 

Section 16.05 provides for a Deferred Mainte- 
nance Account which comes into existence after 
the Approved Revenue Bonds have been paid and 
into this Account will be paid all moneys that are 
in the Reserve Maintenance Account at the time 
said bonds are retired and paid, and the Deferred 
Maintenance Account will take the place of the 
Reserve Maintenance Account for the purpose of 
making repairs, renewals and replacements. 

Article XVII is an article containing matters re- 
lating to treatment of others, consents and approv- 
als of the Commissioner of Public Works, separabil- 
ity, assignment, remedies cumulative, construction 
and counterparts. 

Wherever it is provided that the Airlines have 
a right of assignment, an assignment as to the 
whole is subject to the prior approval of the City, 
but an assignment as to a part of the premises is 
subject to the prior approval of the Commissioner 
of Public Works. 

Lease of Terminal Facilities. 

The terminal facilities provide for fixed rentals 
for the spaces to be occupied by the various Air- 
lines in the Terminal Building. In addition thereto. 



November 7, 1958 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



8365 



passenger ramp areas adjacent to the individual 
terminal building space are rented to the Airlines. 
The combination of rentals of the passenger ramp 
areas totals approximately $1,750,000 as fixed 
rentals, the payments of which are to be credited 
to Airlines' landing fee charges. In other words, 
this passenger ramp rental is considered a pay- 
ment in advance of Flight Fees. 

The term of this and other leases is forty (40) 
years. The provisions in the various Articles are 
more or less standard in each of the leases, the 
principal difference being that the City of Chicago 
will maintain and operate the Air Terminal Build- 
ing, whereas in the Hangar Site Lease, the Cargo 
Lease and the Fueling System Lease, the Airlines 
will maintain those buildings and systems, includ- 
ing the removal of snow, etc. 

The abatement provisions that I referred to 
above are also contained in each of these leases. 
Hangar and Hangar Site Lease. 

Prior to the passage of the ordinance on the 
sale of the revenue bonds, each Airline will have 
submitted to the City an estimate cost of the con- 
struction of each hangar to be constructed by the 
City out of the Revenue Bond Issue. The amount 
estimated for the cost of each hangar is figured 
in the Hangar Construction Account. The amount 
of money to be used for the construction of the 
hangar is included in the total Bond Issue and the 
costs thereof are amortized by paying a fixed rental 
of 1.10 of the costs thereof. The Airlines shall 
have the exclusive use of the hangar and the hang- 
ar site area leased to it. After the revenue bonds 
are paid and retired, Airlines shall have the free 
use of the hangar for the balance of the term, 
provided they pay the ground rental at the rate of 
$2,000 per acre. 

It is provided that the Airlines shall promptly 
submit plans and specifications for an early con- 
struction of the hangar. If, after twenty-seven (27) 
months after the date of sale of bonds, no con- 
tracts have been let by City for the construction 
of any of Airlines hangar, then an amount equal 
to the estimated cost of Airlines' hangar shall be 
transferred from the Hangar Construction Ac- 
count to the General Construction Account. 

If it should appear after bids are open for the 
construction of a hangar that the bids exceed the 
estimate made by Airline and Airline desires to 
proceed with the construction of hangar at such 
cost, then Airline must deposit in escrow the dif- 
ference between the estimated costs and the bid 
figure before the City is required to proceed with 
the construction of the hangar. Also, in the event 
that during the construction of the hangar, it 
should appear that the estimated cost upon which 
the bid was let is insufficient to complete the cost 
of construction of the hangar, then Airline must 
deposit in escrow the additional costs before the 
City may proceed with the completion of the hang- 
ar and as these moneys in escrow are made, they 
are payable to City upon the certificate as to their 
need by the Consulting Engineer. The other stand- 
ard clauses that I referred to above are contained 
in the Hangar and Hangar Site Lease. 

Joint Cargo Building and Site Lease. 

The Joint Cargo Building will be constructed 
from funds of the Revenue Bond Issue and the 
Cargo Building will be leased to several Airlines 
at fixed rentals, which are a part of the 1.10 cov- 
erage of the debt service. Upon payment of the 
bonds, the Airlines are relieved from paying rental 
for the Cargo Building as long as they continue 



to pay the ground rental on the basis of $2,000 
per acre. The lease contains the standard provi- 
sions referred to above. 

There is a special lease of a cargo building to 
be constructed for the Flying Tiger Line, Inc., 
(the Flying Tiger Line, Inc. being certificated as a 
scheduled passenger airline). This cargo building 
will be built upon the estimate made for the con- 
struction thereof out of revenue bond funds and 
the same provisions as to the 1.10 coverage is in 
this lease. It also contains the standard provisions 
referred to above. 

Fueling System Lease. 

In connection with the Revenue Bond Issue, there 
will be constructed an underground fueling system, 
which Airlines, as a group, agree to lease, main- 
tain and operate at a fixed rental, which rental is 
based upon the amortization of the cargo building 
and the payment of 1.10 coverage toward the debt 
service. It is contemplated that the Airlines will 
engage one operator to operate the fuel system for 
all of the Airline Parties. Airline Parties may fur- 
nish lubricants to other certificated airline com- 
panies, depending upon the capacity of the fuel 
system and the needs of the Airline Parties. It 
has been brought out that any scheduled airline 
that is not an Airline Party may, without difficulty, 
enter into agreements with oil companies to furnish 
lubricants without any additional cost to the Air- 
line. 

It must be borne in mind that all of the Air- 
lines, domestic and foreign, have been invited to 
participate in this Agreement, but many of them 
do not want to enter into extended term leases. 
In view of the fact that the Airline Parties are 
entering into commitments, not only to pay the 
debt service at fixed rentals plus a premium, but 
also to use the Airport and to pay Flight Fees and 
make up any deficiency necessary to keep each fis- 
cal year on a current basis. In view of these facts, 
it is reasonable that the Airlines' needs must come 
first and other Airlines will have to take their 
chances on obtaining fuel from other suppliers 
outside the Airport or a basic operator at the Air- 
port. The Airlines, at their own expense, must 
maintain and operate the fueling system. 

The signatories to these Agreements will be the 
following : 

American Airlines, Inc. 
Braniff Airways, Incorporated 
Capital Airlines, Inc. 
Continental Air Lines, Inc. 
Delta Air Lines, Inc. 
Eastern Air Lines, Inc. 
The Flying Tiger Line, Inc. 
Lake Central Airlines, Inc. 
North Central Airlines, Inc. 
Northwest Airlines, Inc. 
Ozark Air Lines, Inc. 
Pan American World Airways, Inc. 
Trans World Airlines, Inc. 
United Air Lines, Inc. 
Trans-Canada Air Lines. 

In the preparation of this memorandum, the 
Corporation Counsel had the cooperation of Mr. 
George DeMent, Commissioner of Public Works,

ment of new street patterns, the location and re- 
location of sewer and water mains and other public 
facilities, and other public action; and

E. Planning Proposals and Project Improvement 
Proposals. 

1. Urban Renewal Area Plan. 

a. Map 2 shows the proposed rights-of-way in Hyde 
Park-Kenwood upon implementation of the Urban 
Renewal Plan. It will be noted that several exist- 
ing streets are to be vacated. If the underground 



November 7, 1958

utilities in such streets are to be preserved, an 
easement is shown. It will be noted on Map 2 that 
several streets are to be widened and new rights- 
of-way dedicated for this purpose and for entirely 
new streets. 

The street system resulting from this rights-of- 
way layout is shown on Map 2. 
b. Map 3 shows the proposed land uses in the Hyde 
Park-Kenwood Urban Renewal Area upon imple- 
mentation of this plan. These land uses have been 
classified into the following general categories: 

(1) Residential — high density. 

(2) Residential — low density. 

(3) Commercial. 

(4) Institutional — local. 

(5) Institutional — Major. 

(6) Parks and open spaces. 

(7) Public schools. 

Map 3 further indicates those land uses which are 
proposed new uses as against those which are now 
existing and are to remain. The proposed new uses 
cover all the land to be acquired by the City of Chi- 
cago under this program and all the public rights-of- 
way to be vacated, less the new rights-of-way to be 
dedicated and those vacated streets reverting to 
abutting owners. 

The location, dimensions and square footage of all 
proposed areas to be resold by the Community Con- 
servation Board for a proposed new use are shown on 
Map 29, Disposition Plan. 

As described in section D above, certain parcels of 
land are to be sold by the Community Conservation 
Board to the Board of Education, the Chicago Park 
District, the Municipal Parking Authority and to the 
City of Chicago for new municipal facilities.

In sites HR-1 (East Kenwood), HR-2 (Cornell Ave- 
nue), HR-3 (Maryland-Drexel) and HR-4 (Drexel 
Square), the maximum net density permitted will be 
100 dwelling units per acre, and all new construction 
will conform to the standards listed in the appropri- 
ate sections of the comprehensive amendment of the 
Chicago Zoning Ordinance. The zoning districts which 
will apply are those shown on Map 6. Retail commer- 
cial uses will be permitted on the first floor of the pro- 
posed high density residential buildings. Such com- 
mercial shall conform to the B-2 classification in the 
zoning ordinance. It is urged that provision be made 
in the conveyance agreements to include the above 
mentioned commissions and small space recreation 
areas for pre-school children. In addition, the inclu- 
sion of community rooms in the design of multiple- 
unit buildings is suggested wherever economically 
feasible. The Chicago Dwellings Association will be 
urged to develop the HR-4 site. 



8444 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCII^-CHICAGO 



November 7, 1958 



It will be noted that site HR-1 includes an easement 
where existing Lake Park Avenue is to be vacated. 
Thus the maximum number of dwelling units permit- 
ted in the high density residential developments will 
be 1,500. 

The property at 1630-40 East 53rd Street (Elms 
Hotel) is not marked for acquisition at this time. 
However, this site is authorized for acquisition and 
resale at cost to the developer at site HR-2 if it is 
necessary for the reuse development of said site HR-2. 

In sites LR-1 through LR-14 the maximum net den- 
sity permitted will be 20 dwelling units per acre. How- 
ever, any of these LR sites may be purchased by near- 
by residential owners and used for off-street parking. 

Sites P-1 through P-21 shall be used for off-street 
parking in connection with nearby residential or in- 
stitutional uses. 

Thus, the maximum number of dwelling units which 
will be permitted in the low density housing sites shall 
be 382.

sive amendment to the Chicago Zoning Ordinance. 
Sites C-5, C-6 and C-7 shall conform to the B-4 cate- 
gory of the comprehensive amendment to the Chicago 
Zoning Ordinance. 

It is recommended that C-6 and C-7 be made avail-

Existing districts as currently provided are shown 
on Map 5. These reflect the use, bulk, density, and 
other designations included in the Chicago Zoning Or- 
dinance, as approved by the City Council of Chicago. 

Map 6 outlines the proposed changes in zoning for 
the Urban Renewal Area. It should be noted that the 
director of the Chicago Rezoning Study, while prepar- 
ing the comprehensive amendment to the Chicago 
Zoning Ordinance, stated in a letter dated July 17, 
1956 (copy enclosed herein Exhibit 2) that the entire 
Hyde Park-Kenwood area will be included under the 



definition of "large scale planned development" and 
taat tne renewal plan will, m face, ceLermme the ap- 
plicable zoning in this area. 

3. Streets and Highway Adjustments Plan. 

a. Existing rights-of-way to be retained and to be 
vacated are shown on Map 2. 

b. Proposed new rights-of-way to be dedicated and 
existing rights-of-way to be retained are shown on 
Map 2. 

4. Public Utilities. 

Existing utilities are shown on Maps 7 to 9. The 
installation, relocation and replacement of these facil- 
ities follows the proposed rights-of-way pattern and 
conforms to established city standards and practices. 
F. Rehabilitation of Structures. 

Rehabilitation, as proposed herein, will apply to all 
buildings not specified for clearance in the Urban 
Renewal Area. This applies to approximately 80% 
of the structures currently in the area. 

Rehabilitation will be undertaken by private volun- 
tary action with continuous and vigilant enforcement 
of the minimum codes of the city. Those structures 
which do not lend themselves to voluntary activity, 
either because of the inability or unwillingness of the 
owner, will be dealt with by the Community Conserva- 
tion Board of Chicago at a later date subject to prior 
City Council approval. In addition, it is recognized 
that an added number of buildings will prove not feas- 
ible for rehabilitation or will be required to be ac- 
quired to meet small space needs. None of these latter 
structures are identified, since a period of operational 
experience will be required to identify the applicable 
structures. As these structurees are identified, ap- 
propriate Community Conservation Board of Chicago, 
Conservation Community Council, City Council and 
Housing and Home Finance Agency approval will be 
requested. 

Financial studies undertaken by the Community 
Conservation Board demonstrate that given mini- 
mum code enforcement, the clearance of concentrated 
slum sections and the provision of adequate com- 
munity facilities, a market in fact exists for well- 
maintained and improved property. 

Upon approval of this Urban Renewal Plan by the 
City Council of Chicago and by the Housing and 
Home Finance Administrator and the appropriate cer- 
tificate being issued by the Urban Renewal Commis- 
sioner to the Commissioner of the Federal Housing 
Administration, properties within the Urban Renewal 
area will become eligible for mortgage insurance pur- 
suant to Section 220 of the National Housing Act of 
1954, as amended. Owners of properties within the 
Urban Renewal area provided with the assurances of 
the Urban Renewal Plan, together with the financial 
aid thus made available by the Federal Housing Ad- 
ministration, will find that enough net income can be 
produced by rehabilitation and improvement of their 
properties to result in satisfactory return on invest- 
ment which will, nevertheless provide housing within 
the means of a predominate number of present resi- 
dents. It is anticipated that the aggregate amount of 
private investment thus stimulated will not be less 
than $30,000,000.00. 
Enforceable Standards: 

In the enforcement of rehabilitation standards, the 
following laws, codes, and regulations relating to the 
use and occupancy of buildings and improvements are 
used in this Plan : 

1. Municipal building code. 

2. Housing code. 

3. Plumbing code.

Voluntary Objectives: 

The rehabilitation of all properties in the project 
area to the following Voluntary Objectives is the de- 
sired goal for the area. The Voluntary Objectives for 
rehabilitation are not enforceable but are those 
things, over and above the aforementioned "Enforce- 
able Standards", which would be required of a quali- 
fied property owner if he wished to make his property 
eligible for FHA mortgage insurance and include but 
is not limited to the following : 

Properties to be rehabilitated must comply with 
the General Acceptability Requirements of the FHA 
Minimum Property Requirements and meet the Ob- 
jectives of all other requirements as interpreted by 
the FHA, in addition: 

a. In properties having not more than two living 
units, proposed construction, other than repairs, 
alterations and additions to existing structures, 
shall comply with the Minimum Property Re- 
quirements for Properties of One or Two Living 
Units. 

b. In properties having three or more living units, 
new structures or additions to existing con- 
struction, shall comply with all specific require- 
ments of the Minimum Property Requirements 
for Properties of Three or More Living Units 
except that modifications meeting the Objectives 
of the MPR are permissive, when necessitated 
by existing conditions which are to remain. 

Under Section 220(d) (3) (A), properties shall 
contain not more than 11 living units at completion; 
under 220(d) (3) (B), properties shall contain 5 or 
more living units at completion. 

Properties must comply with applicable laws, codes, 
ordinances and deed restrictions. 

The property at the completion of rehabilitation 
must be safe and sound in all physical respects and 
be refurnished and altered to bring the property to a 
desirable marketable condition which will continue 
during the life of the mortgage. The acceptability of 
individual properties or projects will be determined 
by the FHA on the basis of the needs and merits of 
each project or case as presented. 

Nonresidential Use. Any nonresidential use of the 
property shall be subordinate to the residential use 
and character of the property. The nonresidential use 
must conform to good standards of planning and zon- 
ing, and should be beneficial, without being detrimen- 
tal, to the residential use of the project, and should 
provide for the dispensing of services and the market- 
ing of goods needed by the residential tenants of the 
proposed project, as well as the neighborhood. 

When appropriate to the class of dwelling, the fol- 
lowing features of questioned acceptability will be 
considered acceptable : 

a. Access to a required bathroom from any room 
except a bedroom in a living unit of more than 
one bedroom. 

Features in the renewal area which are not accept- 
able in any property : 

a. Access to a habitable room only by passing 
through a bedroom. 

b. One warm air furnace serving more than one 
living unit. 

c. Bathroom_s and kitchens serving more than one 
living unit. 



e. 

f. 



Livmg unit without a complete bathroom even 
though a bathroom outside of the living unit 
is available. 

Lack of closet for any bedroom. 
Habitable room with electric ceiling light with- 
out wall switch. Habitable room without at least 
one convenience outlet. 

G. Land Acquisition, Demolition and Clearance. 

Delineated Clearance Sections: All properties with- 
in the delineated clearance sections as shown on Map 
1 are to be acquired and demolished. There are no 
exempt properties within the clearance sections de- 
lineated. 

Acquisition Eligibility. 

In the drafting and conception of this Conservation 
Plan, the Community Conservation Board of Chicago 
has been guided by and has given particular attention 
to certain sections of the Illinois Urban Community 
Conservation Act of 1953, as amended, as follows 
(Chapter 671/2 Smith-Hurd Illinois Revised Statutes 
Sections 91.8, et seq.) : 

"Following such designation the Board shall draw 
up or have submitted for its approval a conserva- 
tion plan for the Area, which plan may include but 
is not limited to (1) land uses, residential and 
non-residential; (2) improvements, alteration or 
vacation of major and minor streets and alleys, 
provision for restricted service access, and off- 
street parking; (3) locations and easements for 
public utilities; (4) community facilities; (5) land- 
scaping and site engineering; (6) building restric- 
tions; (7) recommended construction including new 
buildings, rehabilitation and conversions, demoli- 
tion of designated structures, and elimination of 
non-conforming uses; (8) population, density, 
ground coverage, and number of dwelling units rec- 
ommended; (9) recommended standards of mainte- 
nance, and requirements of applicable health and 
safety financing arrangements of applicable health 
and safety ordinances; (10) zoning and/or rezon- 
ing required; (11) costs and financing arrange- 
ments of public portions of the plan; (12) rec- 
ommended time table of various stages of the pro- 
gram; (13) any and all other steps needed to carry 
out the plan." (Section 91.12.) 

"Real property necessary or appropriate for the 
conservation of urban residential areas — Acquisi- 
tion, use and disposition. The Conservation Board 
of a municipality shall have the power to acquire 
by purchase, condemnation or otherwise any im- 
proved or unimproved real property the acquisition 
of which is necessary or appropriate for the im- 
plementation of a conservation plan for a Conserva- 
tion Area as defined herein; to remove or demolish 
substandard or other buildings and structures from 
the property so acquired;" (Section 91.13.) 

"Cooperation with Conservation Boards, (a) For 
the purpose of aiding a Conservation Board in the 
planning, undertaking or carrying out of a Conser- 
vation Plan in a Conservation Area any state pub- 
lic body (city, village, incorporated town, county, 
municipal corporation, commission, district, author- 
ity, or other subdivision or public body of the 
State), may, upon such terms, with or without con- 
sideration, as it may determine:

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



November 7, 1958 



The structures and parcels thus selected will re- 
quire Community Conservation Board of Chicago, Con- 
servation Community Council, City Council and Hous- 
ing and Home Finance Agency approval prior to their 
acquisition, clearance and disposition. 

No structures or parcels falling within this cate- 
gory will be submitted for approval until and unless 
said proposed open spaces are reviewed by the De- 
partment of Planning and the Chicago Park District 
for conformance to the City standards regarding 
small open spaces. 

H. Regulations and Controls to be Enforced in 
THE Urban Renevv^al Area to Sustain 
THE Renewal. 

With respect to new uses in clearance sections, as 
well as future private and public new constructions, 
the provisions of the Chicago Zoning Ordinance shall 
obtain. Exhibit 1, attached, summarizes the provisions 
of such Zoning Ordinance as to uses permitted or 
excluded, maximum density, maximum floor area ra- 
tio, setback, side yards, off-street parking and loading 
and such other noted provisions. 

Particular attention is directed to the "Planned 
Development" provision of the Chicago Zoning Ordi- 
nance. Such a development is defined as: 

"A 'planned development' is a tract of land which 
is developed as a unit under single ownership or 
control, which includes two or more principal build- 
ings, and which is at least four acres in area, ex- 
cept for planned developments operated by a mu- 
nicipal corporation which shall be at least two acres 
in area, and manufacturing planned developments 
which shall be at least 10 acres in area." 

Planned developments are classified as "special uses" 
throughout the Chicago Zoning Ordinance. Such pro- 
visions will be applicable to the Hyde Park-Kenwood 
Urban Renewal area (see letter dated July 17, 1956 
from Harry F. Chaddick, Director of the City Council 
Committee on Buildings and Zoning, attached as Ex- 
hibit 2) and will be prevailing. 

With respect to the rehabilitation areas and any 
properties not acquired in clearance areas, the mini- 
mum housing, plumbing, building, electrical, fire and 
health codes and the provisions of this Urban Renewal 
Plan shall apply. In addition, in all buildings to be 
retained in the rehabilitation areas, no alterations, 
increasing the intensity or changing the character of 
use, shall be permitted unless all the provisions for 
new construction in the Chicago Zoning Ordinance as 
applied in this plan and shown on Map 6 are met. 
This includes uses permitted or excluded, maximum 
densities, maximum floor area ratio, setback, side 
yards, off-street parking and loading and such other 
noted provisions, and all other controls and standards 
required of new construction for the district in which 
the building in question stands. 

These controls will also apply to all new construc- 
tion on a continuing basis after project execution. 

I. Conformity to General Plan and 
Workable Program. 

The Hyde Park-Kenwood Renewal Plan conforms 
to the Workable Program of the City of Chicago, 
which is submitted in revised form each year by the 
city to the Federal Government. 

Prior to submission of renewal plans to City Coun- 
cil and to the Housing and Home Finance Agency of 
the Federal Government, the Department of Planning 
reviews the proposals in the light of its continuing 
studies and conclusions as to the General Plan for the 
city as a whole and to the specific elements of the 



General Plan which affect planning considerations in 
the Renewal Area. 

The Department of Planning of the City of Chicago 
reviewed this renewal plan prior to its submission to 
the City Council and the Housing and Home Finance 
Agency of the Federal Government and found that 
this plan is in conformance and consistent with the 
general planning objectives of the City of Chicago. 
An ofllcial statement of the Department of Planning 
is submitted under separate cover. 

J. Relationship to Definite Local Objectives. 
1. Land Uses. 

The Land Use Plan and the Zoning Plan, which are 
the parts of this document pertaining to land uses, 
have been approved by the Department of Planning 
of the City of Chicago and conform to definite ob- 
jectives as to land use (see Paragraph I above). 

2. Traffic. 
The traffic recommendations incorporated in this 
Renewal Plan conform to the Preferential Street Sys- 
tem adopted by the Department of Planning. This 
system defines the major traffic carriers throughout 
the city. 

Design standards and local street patterns meet 
modern concepts of street layout and have been de- 
veloped by the City of Chicago, acting by and through 
the Department of Streets and Sanitation, the De- 
partment of Planning, and the Department of Public 
Works. 

3. Recreation Facilities. 

Park and playground standards for Chicago were 
developed in 1952 and described in a booklet entitled 
"Principles for Chicago's Recreation Plan." This state- 
ment was prepared by the Chicago Recreation Com- 
mission, a body composed of members of Chicago Plan 
Commission, Chicago Park District, Bureau of Parks 
and Recreation, Board of Education, Chicago Public 
Library, Chicago Housing Authority, and Welfare 
Council of Metropolitan Chicago. 

This Renewal Plan provides for an additional 18.2 
acres of park and playground space. Thus the local 
objectives of achieving adequate park and recreation 
space are being served. 

In addition, the program which will make available 
small sites for small play lot and parking lot purposes 
(as discussed in G above) is an important added step 
in accomplishing the objectives outlined in the Chi- 
cago Recreation Commission statement. 

4. Schools. 

The school proposals incorporated in the Renewal 
Plan were developed jointly with the Board of Educa- 
tion and reflect the Board of Education policies with 
respect to school location, size, play area, and future 
sites. 

K. Other Provisions Necessary to Meet State and 
Local Requirements. 

All the maps, statements, and documents which are 
required by state and local laws are being submitted 
herein. 

Maps and Exhibits. 
Certain maps and exhibits bearing upon the ques- 
tion of eligibility are attached, as follows : 
Map 10 — Existing land uses. 
Map 11 — Age of structures. 

Map 12 — Dilapidation and Alleged Major Code Vio- 
lations.

Eligibility. 
The Illinois Urban Community Conservation Act of 

1953, as amended, defines a "conservation area" as 

follows : 

"Conservation Area" shall mean an area of not 
less than 160 acres in which the structures in 50% 
or more of the area are residential having an aver- 
age age of thirty-five years or more. Such an area 
is not yet a slum or blighted area as defined in the 
Blighted Areas Redevelopment Act of 1947, but 
such area by reason of dilapidation, obsolescence, 
deterioration or illegal use of individual structures, 
overcrowding of structures and community facili- 
ties, conversion of residential units into non-residen- 
tial use, deleterious land use or layout, decline of 
physical maintenance, lack of community planning, 
or any combination of these factors may become 
such a slum and blighted area." i 

The Hyde Park-Kenwood area, as shown on Map 10 
(Existing Land Uses), is bounded by: 

East 47th Street on the North; 
East 59th Street on the South ; 
Cottage Grove Avenue on the West; and 
Lake Michigan on the East ; 
and excluding the following: 
Jackson Park; 
Burnham Park; 

The right-of-way of the Illinois Central Railroad; 
Slum and Blighted Areas Redevelopment Projects 
Hyde Park A and Hyde Park B ; and 

The campus of the University of Chicago. 

The Hyde Park-Kenwood area, as described above 
and as shown on all accompanying maps, contains 
855.8 acres. 

Table 5 lists the existing land uses in this area and 
indicates that it is 90% residential. 

Map 11, Age of structures, clearly indicates that 
the overwhelming number of structures are 35 years 
or older. 

Table 6 and Map 12 provide data and graphic evi- 
dence on the condition of the area, defined in terms 
conforming with the law cited above. These data were 
obtained from the following sources : 

1. Three complete field inspections by Building 
Department of City of Chicago. 

2. Complete structure survey and dwelling unit 
sample survey conducted by National Opinion Re- 
search Center, representing Chicago Community 
Inventory. 

3. Field surveys and analyses by planning staff.

1 The Illinois Urban Community Conservation Act 
(Chapter 67^/2 Smith-Hurd Illinois Revised Statutes 
Sections 91.8 et seq.) uses and defines the terms of 
"conservation area" and "conservation plan". The 
United States Federal Housing Act of 1949, as amend- 
ed 1954 (Public Law 171, 81st Congress, 42 U.S.C. 
Section 1451) uses and defines the terms of "Urban 
Renewal Area", "Urban Renewal Plan" and "Urban 
Renewal Project". While the terms are not synony- 
mous since the Federal terms are more inclusive cov- 
ering totally blighted areas as well as conservation 
areas, for the purposes of this document the terms 
"Urban Renewal" and "Conservation" are used inter- 
changeably, except where specifically distinguished.

Field surveys and analyses by planning staff. 

The Hyde Park-Kenwood Area, as described, is a 
conservation area within the meaning of the Illinois 
Urban Community Conservation Act and has been so 
designated and certified. 

Public Financing 

As provided in the Federal Housing Act of 1949, as 
amended, the Housing and Home Finance Agency of 
the United States is authorized to extend capital 
grants to local public bodies in order to assist them 
in carrying out urban renewal projects. Local partici- 
pation is required to an extent of at least one-fourth 
of the net project costs involved, not including sur- 
vey and planning and other administrative expenses

which are totally paid from local funds. Such local 
participation in the net project cost may take the form 
of cash grants and expenditures, donations of land 
under certain circumstances, and the provision of 
parks, playgrounds, public buildings or other appro- 
priate facilities to serve and support the urban re- 
newal project. 

The estimated Federal capital grant for this project 
is $27,766,438 plus a relocation grant of $805,275 for 
a total Federal grant of $28,571,713. (It should be 
noted that under the formula used in preliminary 
planning, a capital grant reservation in the amount 
of $25,835,000.00 was made by the Housing and Home 
Finance Agency, December 20, 1956.) The minimum 
local matching funds and non-cash contributions will 
be an estimated $9,255,480.00. Of this amount, $1,- 
847,755* will be in direct cash derived from the sale 
of bonds of the City of Chicago for Community Con- 
servation as approved by the electorate in the spring 
of 1957. The balance of funds and works will be de- 
rived from proposed cooperative agreements pursuant 
in Section 91-14 of the Urban Community Conserva- 
tion Act (set forth above) wherein the Community 
Conservation Board of Chicago in carrying out the 
Conservation Plan will receive participation and as- 
sistance, as follows : 

City of Chicago — Department of Public 
Works and Department of Streets and 
Sanitation $1,140,972 

City of Chicago — Engineering Costs 114,097 

City of Chicago — Department of Public 

Works (civic center) 412,109 

City of Chicago— Fire Department 220,500 

City of Chicago — Department of Streets 

and Sanitation (street lighting) 469,467 

City of Chicago — Bureau of Parks, Rec- 
reation and Forestry 59,500 
Board of Education 3,462,431

Details as to the public works covering such ex- 
penditures are furnished hereinbefore. In each case 
the project covered by such expenditures has been or 
will be approved as necessary and essential by the 
local public agency having appropriate jurisdiction 
and in the appropriate cases by the Capital Improve- 
ment Division of the Department of Planning of the 
City of Chicago. 

Relocation. 

Based on surveys undertaken by the Community 
Conservation Board of Chicago 4,371 two or more 
person families will be relocated from the proposed 
clearance sections. The relocation operation will be 
undertaken by the Community Conservation Board of 
Chicago with due regard for the legal rights of each 



*Certain non-cash expenditures which are detailed in 
this plan are now being reviewed by the Federal Gov- 
ernment and when approved will reduce the Commun- 
ity Conservation Board funds required by an esti- 
mated $400,000. 



family and with proper concern for the needs of each 
family. The fact that the relocation period will ex- 
tend over five years will ease the task. The relocation 
responsibility will be eased further by the fact that 
two-thirds of the families, approximately 65 per cent, 
are two and three person families. 

Relocation is frankly recognized to represent a ma- 
jor element in the project execution stage, and no 
demolition will proceed except as the letter and spirit 
of the requirements of law are met. 

Non-discrimination. 

No lease or deed of conveyance either by the Com- 
munity Conservation Board of Chicago, or any subse- 
quent owner, shall contain a covenant running with 
the land, or other provision prohibiting the occupancy 
of the premises by any person because of race, creed 
or color and provided further that any contract of 
sale of land hereunder shall provide as a condition of 
sale that there shall be no discrimination for race, 
creed or color in the subsequent sale and lease of the 
land and all improvements on it which are constructed 
pursuant to the Renewal Plan or any revision of it. 

L. Official Actions to Carry Out Plan. 

As provided in Section 91.12, Illinois Urban Com- 
munity Conservation Act of 1953, as amended, there 
shall be appointed a Conservation Community Coun- 
cil (in the Hyde Park-Kenwood Area, such a council 
has in fact been appointed in accordance with the 
aforementioned statute). 

This council is charged with the responsibility of 
approving the Conservation Plan by majority vote for 
their respective area before it is submitted to the City 
Council. 

The Community Conservation Board of Chicago, 
after approval by Conservation Community Council, 
shall submit the plan to the City Council. 

The City Council shall, by resolution, adopt or re- 
ject the Plan after furnishing due notice and holding 
public hearings as provided in State Statutes. 

Following favorable City Council action, the Com- 
munity Conservation Board of Chicago shall certify 
the Plan as adopted and may thereafter exercise in 
such area (covered by the plan) the powers granted 
under the Illinois Urban Community Conservation Act 
of 1953, as amended. 

Due and proper action as provided by law, has or 
will be taken by all independent public agencies in 
carrying out this Renewal Plan. 

M. Changes in Approved Plan. 

All amendments and changes in the Urban Renewal 
Plan after initial passage by the City Council will have 
to be submitted to the City Council for separate ap- 
proval. 

Changes pertaining to expenditures by the Board 
of Education or the Chicago Park District must be 
approved by those bodies. 

All amendments and changes in the Urban Renewal 
Plan after initial approval by the Community Conser- 
vation Board (the Local Public Agency) must be ap- 
proved by that body. 

All amendments and changes in the Urban Renewal 
Plan after initial approval by the Conservation Com- 
munity Council must be approved by that body. 

N. Redevelopment Plan for Clearance Sections. 

This Urban Renewal Plan also constitutes the Re- 
development Plan for all clearance sections in the Ur- 
ban Renewal area.

Off-Street Parking and Loading Facilities. 

Scope of Regulations. The off-street parking and 
loading provisions shall apply as follows : 

(1) For all buildings and structures erected and 
all uses of land established, accessory parking and 
loading facilities shall be provided as required by the 
regulations of the districts in which such buildings 
or uses are located. 

(2) When the intensity of use of any building, 
structure or premises shall be increased through ad- 
dition of dwelling units, gross floor area, seating ca- 
pacity, or other units of measurement specified herein 
for required parking or loading facilities, parking and 
loading facilities as required herein shall be provided 
for such increase in intensity of use. However, no 
building or structure lawfully erected or use already 
lawfully established shall be required to provide such 
additional parking or loading facilities unless and un- 
til the aggregate increase in units of measurement 
shall equal not less than 15 per cent of the units of 
measurement, in which event parking or loading facil- 
ities as required herein shall be provided for the total 
increase; provided, however, that in the case of the 
expansion or alteration of residential buildings re- 
quired parking or loading facilities shall be provided 
on the basis of the total required units of measure- 
ment for the entire capacity of the building. 

(3) Whenever the existing use of a building or 
structure shall hereafter be changed to a new use, 
parking or loading facilities shall be provided as re- 
quired for such new use. However, if the said building 
or structure was already erected, additional parking 
or loading facilities are mandatory only in the amount 
by which the requirements for the new use would 
exceed those for the existing use if the latter were 
subject to the parking and loading provisions. 

Existing Parking Facilities. Accessory off-street 
parking facilities in existence and located on the same 
lot as the building or use served shall not hereafter 
be reduced below, or if already less than shall not be 
further reduced below, the requirements for a similar 
new building or use. 

Permissive Parking and Loading Facilities. Noth- 
ing shall be deemed to prevent the voluntary estab- 
lishment of off-street parking or loading facilities to 
serve any existing use of land or buildings provided 
that all regulations herein governing the location, 
design, and operation of such facilities are adhered to. 

Damage or Destruction. For any conforming or 
legally non-conforming building or use which is in 
existence, which subsequently thereto is damaged or 
destroyed by fire, collapse, explosion, or other cause, 
and which is reconstructed, re-established, or repaired, 
off-street parking or loading facilities need not be 
provided, except that parking or loading facilities 
equivalent to any maintained at the time of such dam- 
age or destruction shall be restored or continued in 
operation. However, in no case shall it be necessary 
to restore or maintain parking or loading facilities in 
excess of those required for equivalent new uses or 
construction. 

Control of Off-Site Parking Facilities. In cases 
where parking facilities are permitted on land other 
than the zoning lot on which the building or use 
served is located, such facilities shall be in the same 



possession as the zoning lot occupied by the building 
or use to which the parking facilities are accessory. 
Such possession may be either by deed or long term 
lease, the term of such lease to be determined by the 
Board of Appeals. The owner of the land on which the 
parking facilities are to be located shall be bound by 
covenants filed of record in The Office of the Recorder 
of Deeds or the Registrar of Titles of Cook County, 
requiring such owner, his or her heirs and assigns, to 
maintain the required number of parking facilities 
for the duration of the use served or of the said 
lease, whichever shall terminate sooner.

Mr. Julian H. Levi 
Executive Director 
South East Chicago Commission 
UOO E. 53rd Street 
Chicago 15, Illinois 

Dear Mr. Levi: 

I have your letter of July 13 regarding the Hyde 
Park-Kenwood community conservation area which is 
now before the Chicago Community Conservation 
Board. I do not believe it is necessary for you to 
obtain any official documents for the use of our staff 
in considering provisions in the Comprehensive Amend- 
ment to the Chicago Zoning Ordinance at this time. 

As stated to you in our meeting. Article 7.5 relat- 
ing to Special Uses will cover all large-scale plan de- 
velopments such as the Hyde Park-Kenwood program. 
In this particular instance it is my understanding that 
after you have complied with all of the requirements 
of the Conservation Board and the Federal Govern- 
ment that a final plan will be submitted to the City 
Council for approval. When this is done our staff will 
recognize the Council's action on the final plan in the 
Comprehensive Amendment by mapping accordingly 
the requirements or regulations contained in the plan 
approved by the City Council. 

I believe my interpretation you will agree with, and 
do wish that you would keep us advised from time to 
time as to how this plan is progressing, as we are 
very anxious to provide in our final draft of the Com- 
prehensive Amendment zoning requirements that will 
be compatible with your program. 

Sincerely yours, 

/s/ Harry F. Chaddick, 

Harry F. Chaddick, 
HFC: ml Director.

HYDE PARK-KENWOOD URBAN RENEWAL 
AREA RELOCATION PLAN 

September 9, 1958 
Introduction. 

The Community Conservation Board accepts and 
assumes basic responsibility for relocating all fam- 
ilies displaced by public action within the urban 
renewal area in accordance with requirements of 
Sec. 105(c) of the Federal Housing Act of 1949 as 
Amended. 

It will be the policy of the City of Chicago ( Com- 
munity Conservation Board of Chicago), to sched- 
ule its activities so that the number of families 
displaced does not exceed the current supply of 
standard housing units available to the families. 
In order to fulfill this objective the Board's reloca- 
tion program will be coordinated with the activities 
of other city agencies which result in family dis- 
placement. Monthly reports on relocation progress 
will be submitted to the coordinating office of the 
Department of Planning and regular reports on 
city-wide relocation activity will be received from 
that office. Consultations with other city agencies 
will be arranged as the need arises. In addition the 
Board will work closely with community organiza- 
tions and realtors in the area of the project to in- 
sure the effective utilization of existing housing 
resources. The Board's policy will be further im- 
plemented by review of the administrative organi- 
zation and through specific procedures that have 
been evolved in the course of several years of ex- 
perience by the Chicago Land Clearance Commis- 
sion. 

A. Administrative Organization and Operations. 

1. Relocation Section. 

The Tenants Relocation Bureau of the City of 
Chicago will be responsible for relocation. In this 
section of the Relocation plan there is discussed 
only those functions and personnel which pertain 
to relocation. 

Relocation Office. — An adequate relocation office 
will be established to serve the project. Care will 
be taken to assure convenient access to all project 
area residents. The staff of the relocation office 
will consist of a Field Supervisor, one or more 
Field Workers and Site Interviewers, and necessary 
clerical personnel. Both the size of the staff and 
the degree of specialization in the field office will 
vary with the total number of families to be relocat- 
ed and with special circumstances. An average 
active case load of from fifty to sixty families per 
professional worker has proved to be desirable in 
Chicago Land Clearance Commission operations. 
The functions performed by the relocation office 
staff will include the following: acquired structures 
will be surveyed; occupants of acquired buildings 
will be interviewed and thereafter visited regularly 
until relocation is accomplished; basic records are 
maintained on each relocation case; units for rent 
or sale are located, inspected and referred to fam- 
ilies; welfare agencies will be consulted when war- 
ranted by special family problems; and reports on 
all activities will be submitted to the Community 
Conservation Board. 

2. Relocation Operations. 

From the original housing and population survey 
of each project a Site Occupant Inventory will be 
prepared (Exhibit 1). Structures will be numbered 
consecutively, and for each there will be entered 
total number of relocation cases, classified by type 
of occupancy, race, family composition, and eligibil- 



ity for public housing. A relocation survey will be 
made upon the acquisition of each structure, and 
the data obtained will be similarly entered on the 
inventory. This inventory will be the source of a 
recurring revision of the estimated number of re- 
location cases in the project area. 

The relocation survey will also be the occasion 
for preparation of three basic relocation records, 
the Structure Control Card, the Site Occupant Re- 
location Record, and the Site Occupant Interview 
Register. 

a. The Structure Control Card (Exhibit 2). This 
record will provide complete information on the 
occupancy status of each building owned by the 
Board at any given time. All dwelling units and 
non-residential units will be numbered in separate 
series. Opposite the designation for each unit will 
be recorded the occupant, classified and coded by 
type, family composition and race. The final entry 
for each unit will be the date on which it was va- 
cated. When temporary moves are made within the 
project area, the control card for each structure 
will be cross-indexed accordingly. 

b. The Site Occupant Relocation Record (Ex- 
hibit 3). This record will be prepared for every 
family and primary individual. On it will be en- 
tered all data pertinent to the re-housing of the 
family, i.e., names and ages of family members, 
family income and sources, housing preferences 
and needs, and rent-paying ability. As relocation 
proceeds each step will be recorded, including, fi- 
nally, the disposition of the case. A Non-Residential 
Unit Control Card, containing similar entries, will 
be prepared for each commercial, industrial and 
institutional occupant (Exhibit 4). 

c. The Site Occupant Interview Register (Ex- 
hibit 5). Every family will be assigned to an in- 
dividual staff worker who will be required to main- 
tain regular contact with that family until reloca- 
tion is completed. A record of each contact will be 
kept on the interview register, together with a 
notation of all referrals given to the family and the 
action taken on each referral. 

Every move from a L.P.A. -owned structure will 
be promptly reported to the Supervisor of Reloca- 
tion, along with the effective date of the move and 
the new address of the former occupant (Exhibit 
6). When the move-out represents a permanent re- 
location the basic family records will be completed 
and forwarded to the central office. Similarly, when 
a structure is completely vacated, the Structure 
Control Card will be sent to the central office, and 
the building will be processed for demolition. 

3. Other Programs Displacing Families within the 
Area during the Period of Execution. 

On June 29, 1956, South West Hyde Park Neigh- 
borhood Redevelopment Corporation, a corporation 
organized and existing under and by virtue of the 
Illinois Neighborhood Redevelopment Corporation 
Act, filed its Application for the Approval of a 
Development Plan before the Neighborhood Rede- 
velopment Commission of Chicago. Said Commis- 
sion, as provided by law, took jurisdiction over said 
Application and said Corporation and docketed said 
proceedings as Redevelopment Proceedings No. 2. 

The following statement on relocation standards 
was made on behalf of the corporation to the Neigh- 
borhood Redevelopment Commission : 

"The Corporation will follow the standards of 
relocation as established by Federal and local public 
agency standards. Specifically, this means that the 
Corporation will comply with Section 105 of the 
Housing Act of 1949 as amended, which will require 



November 7, 1958

the relocation of families at rents or prices within 
the financial means of these families displaced from 
the project area in decent, safe and sanitary dwell- 
ings reasonably accessible to their places of em- 
ployment. 

"Specific standards by which dwellings will be 
judged as adequate for relocation purposes will be 
precisely those adopted by the Chicago Land Clear- 
ance Commission and as approved by the Housing 
and Home Financing Agency of the United States. 

"The Corporation will maintain records as to 
dwelling units thus concerned, with an adequate 
description of the character and compliances with 
the standards as above set forth. 

B. Policies and Procedures for Locating, Inspecting 
and Referring Site Occupants to Permanent Relo- 
cation Accommodations. 

1. Referrals to Low-rent Public Housing. 

The Illinois Rehousing Act of 1647, section 3 
(3) (Illinois Revised Sta., 1953, ch. 671/2, 92-95) 
provides that first preference for housing tjuilt un- 
der that Act be given to eligible persons from the 
area of a redevelopment project that cannot other- 
wise be rehoused in decent, safe, and sanitary ac- 
commodations within their financial reach. This 
same priority is authorized by Title III of the U.S. 
Housing Act of 1949. The Chicago Housing Author- 
ity has agreed to place in any of its projects those 
families displaced by this L.P.A. who are eligible 
for public housing. This arrangement will permit 
flexibility and the expeditious re-housing of elig- 
ible families according to size and preferred loca- 
tion. 

Early in the interviewing process, a family's 
preference and apparent eligibility for public hous- 
ing will be determined. A staff worker will assist 
the family in completing a public housing applica- 
tion and in assembling the collateral data neces- 
sary for a final determination of eligibility (Ex- 
hibit 7). For each application two control cards 
will be prepared. These will indicate the exact 
status of an application at any given time. One of 
these will be filed by the size of the required unit 
as measured by the number of bedrooms (Exhibit 
8) and the other alphabetically by applicant's 
name. 

Completed applications and supporting docu- 
ments will be submitted to the Chicago Housing 
Authority for review and action. The Transmittal 
Letter (Exhibit 9) establishes the applicant's pri- 
ority rating in obtaining a unit. On the bottom of 
the Transmittal Letter is a form which the Chica- 
go Housing Authority returns after making an 
entry to show whether or not the family will be 
accommodated in a public housing unit. 

If a family is eligible for accommodation in a 
public housing unit and rejects this accommoda- 
tion, or refuses to make application for such ac- 
commodation, the L.P.A. is relieved of its respon- 
sibility to help relocate that family. If, however, 
a family is rejected for the accommodation by the 
Chicago Housing Authority, the L.P.A. still is re- 
sponsible to relocate the family in decent, safe and 
sanitary accommodations within their financial 
reach. 

Such rejection, in the experience of the Chicago 
Land Clearance Commission, is usually in cases of 
"problem families" i.e., those with unusually large 
numbers of children, illegitimate children, welfare 
cases, elderly persons, etc. It is anticipated that 
there will be a much lower proportion of such 
families in this project workload than is true of 
land clearance projects because this is a deterio- 



rating area, not a slum and blighted area. Table 
5 shows that there are relatively few large sized 
families and units are expected to be available to 
rehouse these families. 

It is recognized that special efforts will be re- 
quired in relocating these families and intends to 
fulfill its responsibility in this regard. Close co- 
ordination and cooperation in the relocation of 
problem families will be maintained with appro- 
priate social v/elfare agencies (see Section E be- 
low). 

2. Inspecting and Certifying Private Units. 

a. Staff Referrals — All dwelling units located 
by staff personnel will be recorded either as Apart- 
ment for Rent (Exhibit 10) or Building for Sale 
(Exhibit 11), together with data on occupancy 
restrictions, rent, size, and availability. A field 
worker will inspect the unit to determine its suit- 
ability for family referral. For each standard unit 
accepted by a family a Dwelling Unit Certification 
(Exhibit 12) will be completed. This form will in- 
corporate a check list of standards which must be 
met. 

b. Self-located Units — Every self-located unit is 
inspected by a staff worker, in advance of the move 
when possible. If the unit does not meet the re- 
quirements for permanent relocation, the family 
will be encouraged to look further, and assistance 
in the form of referrals will be offered. If the unit 
is standard a certification form will be prepared 
and the family will be considered to be permanent- 
ly relocated by its own initiative. 

3. Assistance Offered to Families Self-Located in 
Sub-Standard Units. 

The characteristics of a standard dwelling unit 
will be explained verbally to each family by the 
person assigned by the relocation office to work 
with that family. In addition a written description 
will be given the family during the first interview 
(Exhibit 13). Nevertheless, some families will 
move into sub-standard units on their own initia- 
tive and without notifying the staff worker before- 
hand. When inspection reveals that a self-located 
unit lacks any of the characteristics of a standard 
unit, the family will be encouraged to accept as- 
sistance in finding satisfactory accommodations. 
At this point, if the family is eligible for public 
housing, this possibility is again brought to the 
family's attention. It is sometimes found that a 
family will accept further assistance after some 
time has elapsed, even though the idea of a second 
move was rejected immediately following the date 
of the first move. 

The city will continue to offer assistance until 
(a) the family moves into a standard dwelling 
unit, or (b) the offer of further assistance is ex- 
plicitly refused. In the latter case, the refusal will 
be documented and recorded on both the Site Oc- 
cupant Relocation Record and the Site Occupant 
Interview Register. 

4. Tracing Disappeared Families. 

Families that move without notifying the office 
of a new address will be kept as a continuing re- 
sponsibility until they are located. The staff work- 
er to whom a disappeared family is assigned will 
be required to keep a detailed record of all steps 
taken in attempting to locate it. These steps may 
include consulting school records, interviewing 
neighbors and former landlords, employers, and 
social agencies. 

Several measures in the relocation procedure 
will be designed to keep the number of disappeared 



8500

November 7, 1958 



families at a minimum. During the early interviews, 
the staff worker will carefully explain the assist- 
ance available to families to be displaced and the 
resulting advantages of keeping in touch with the 
office. Names of friends or relatives outside the 
immediate family unit will be obtained whenever 
possible. Schools attended by the children will be 
recorded so that transfers can be checked. Basic- 
ally, however, a good relationship, maintained by 
regular and frequent visits to the families, is the 
best means of avoiding this problem. 

5. Use of Temporary Relocation Facilities. 

The use of temporary off-site facilities will be 
avoided whenever possible. Project residents will 
be referred to such units only in emergency situ- 
ations, such as when they occupy an extremely 
hazardous building, and when standard perman- 
ent facilities are not available. Referrals will be 
made only to temporary units that are not less de- 
sirable than the dwelling in the project are and 
that are safe and habitable. Families which accept 
temporary facilities will be recorded in the Fam- 
ilies Temporarily Relocated Off-Site Register (Ex- 
hibit 14). Visits and offers of assistance will be 
continued until the family is permanently rehoused. 

Temporary moves within the project area will 
also be avoided when possible, but they may be 
necessary in emergency situations. The Supervisor 
of Relocation must approve such moves. The new 
address will be recorded on the Site Occupant Re- 
location Record and the Interview Register. These 
families will be maintained as part of the current 
case load until permanent relocation is accom- 
plished. 

C. Notification to Site Occupants. 

The primary means of channeling information 
to project area residents will be through frequent 
visits to their homes by relocation staff personnel. 
In addition, families will be encouraged to visit the 
relocation office freely. Personal contact will be 
supplemented by letters designed to meet whatever 
situations arise. 

1. The Information Statement (Exhibit 15) will 
be delivered to each occupant as a regular part of 
the first interview after a building is acquired. All 
of the basic elements required by the Local Public 
Agency Manual will be incorporated in this state- 
ment. The delivery date of the statement will be 
recorded on the Site Occupant Relocation Record. 

2. Where buildings are so hazardous as to re- 
quire emergency evacuation, a notification (Ex- 
hibit 16) will be delivered to each occupant. This 
will be followed a week later by a second notifica- 
tion as well as by intensive personal work with 
the families involved. 

3. It may happen that a target date for vacat- 
ing a structure will not be determined at the time 
of the initial survey. When such a date is later 
assigned the occupants will be notified by letter. 

4. Each non-residential tenant will be given a 
statement (Exhibit 17), which will correspond to 
the informational statement to be delivered to res- 
idents. This letter will explain the purpose and 
objectives of the renewal program and will inform 
the tenant as to the probable date on which he 
will be required to vacate. 

5. Each tenant of a building for which rehabili- 
tation is scheduled will be given a statement (Ex- 
hibit 18) informing him of the relocation services 
and will include all the elements required by the 
Local Public Agency Manual. 



D. Eviction Policy. 

In only a negligible number of cases in projects 
undertaken to date by the Chicago Land Clearance 
Commission has it been necessary to resort to 
legal action against project area residents. It is 
anticipated that this will be true of this renewal 
project also. 

Eviction proceedings will be instituted only in 
event of: 

(1) a failure to recognize the obligation to pay 
rent; 

(2) a persistent refusal by a family to co-operate 
in accepting referrals to standard units; or 

(3) the maintenance of a nuisance or an illegal 
activity on the premises of property owned 
by the L.P.A. 

(4) failure to co-operate with the L.P.A., i.e., re- 
fusal to admit Relocation Field workers for 
interviews, etc. 

E. Financial Assistance. 

1. Relocation Payments from Federal Funds. 
Relocation payments will be made in accordance 

with Federal procedures. 

Application for payment will be filed at the re- 
location office on a Claim for Relocation Payment. 
The claimant may, at his option, request direct 
reimbursement, or he may authorize the mover to 
submit a bill directly to the city for payment. In 
either case the claim must be accompanied by doc- 
umentary evidence of actual costs incurred. All 
claims will be approved by the Commissioner of the 
Community Conservation Board of Chicago. 

Moving companies that submit bills directly to 
the L.P.A. will be required to state the number of 
rooms of furniture moved, the distance of the move, 
the time elapsed, and the hourly rates charged, as 
a basis for the total charge. Families will be re- 
quired to sign a statement releasing the L.P.A. 
from all liability connected with the move (Ex- 
hibit 19). 

It will be the policy of the L.P.A. not to re-rent 
units once they are vacated, thus avoiding a suc- 
cession of occupants who might file claims for re- 
location payments. The only exception to this rule 
will be in the case of moves from the project lo- 
cation to another, made for the convenience of the 
L.P.A. in order to avoid the expense of making 
repairs to a hazardous structure. In this event, 
such moving assistance as will be given will be 
charged as property management expense. As stat- 
ed above, intra-area moves are avoided whenever 
possible. 

2. Other Financial Assistance. 

The L.P.A. will make every effort to refer fam- 
ilies to appropriate social welfare agencies when 
financial assistance is needed. There may be re- 
current cases, however, where aid is required for 
satisfactory relocation and agency assistance is 
not available. For example, a family may be un- 
able to pay advance rent on a new apartment plus 
a required deposit. 

In cases of this nature the L.P.A. will give the 
emergency assistance required to effect relocation 
into a standard unit. Such assistance will be paid 
out of the L.P.A. funds and will not become a 
project cost. It may take the form of a rent pay- 
ment, of moving expenses for a family ineligible 
for a relocation payment out of Federal Funds, or 
of moving expenses in excess of the allowable 
$100 relocation payment. It is emphasized that ef-

forts will be made to obtain agency aid before 
such assistance will be granted. 

F. Enlisting Community Cooperation. 

In order to minimize the misunderstanding and 
hardships of site families in the relocation process, 
the L.P.A. intends to enlist the cooperation, aid and 
advice of community organizations. 

In addition it has been suggested that a Relocation 
Advisory Committee be set up with representation 
from a broad cross-section of city-wide groups (i.e., 
civic, labor, welfare, veterans, real estate, etc.) to 
aid in explaining the Relocation Plan to the public and 
in locating rehousing resources. 

G. Relocation Services for Businesses 

AND Individuals. 

Although not required to do so by Federal regula- 
tions, the L.P.A. intends to make available to individ- 
uals and businesses the services provided to displaced 
families by the site office. Site office workers in search- 
ing out and listing accommodations to be offered to 
displaced families will also list facilities suitable for 
single householders and roomers as well as business 
and commercial concerns. Such a listing will be made 
available to individuals or businesses who are being 
displaced by this program together with whatever 
advice and assistance is possible and practical with- 
out jeopardizing the family relocation service. < 

H. Protection to Surrounding Areas. 

The L.P.A. has instituted a program of code en- 
forcement throughout the older sections of the city 
generally aimed at preventing further deterioration 
of these areas. This program will be given added 
specific emphasis in connection with this renewal plan 
to assure that areas into which families are relocated 
are not allowed to slip into the blighted category. 
Among the measures employed to carry out this ob- 
jective (see attached news reports) are: 

1) Department of Buildings Task Force Team In- 
spections 

2) Fire Department inspections 

3) Discussions between Mayor Daley and repre- 
sentatives of mortgage bankers groups, fire in- 
surance brokers, savings and loan institutions, 
F.H.A., etc., relative to making it financially 
impossible to operate unsafe buildings.

Daley Pledges Big Housing Program. 
Tells Progress of Move to Clean Out the Slums. 

A "great private housing building program for our 
middle-income groups" was promised Thursday by 
Mayor Daley. 

Daley said he hopes to have a program ready by his 
next meeting with representatives of Chicago real es- 
tate, mortgage banking and insurance groups. 

The program will be a "financially feasible one," 
Daley said. 



units for larger families, and discussions are contin- 
uing. 

* * * 

6. The Housing & Home Finance Agency in Febru- 
ary certified Chicago for a new type FHA mortgage 
insurance known as Section 221, for families displaced 
by slum clearance and other programs. 

7. The Fire Department has completed a house-to- 
house inspection on the South Side and is now going 
into other areas. 

8. Lists of buildings considered dangerous were dis- 
tributed and the Building Department has received 
permit requests from owners to bring them into com- 
pliance. 

9. The courts have been asked to vacate buildings 
that are dangerous and beyond repair. 

Daley cited as examples buildings at 322 Erie, 2207 
Prairie, 4949 Indiana and 3908 Indiana. 

10. The Building Department has expanded its pro- 
gram of "task force" inspections and the courts have 
cooperated by adopting a new policy of reducing con- 
tinuances and keeping fines once entered. 



Daley said the proposal will include both new con- 
struction and rehabilitation of present units. 

The program will be financed through private cap- 
ital, said the mayor. He said his proposal will in- 
clude an array of methods of financing the program. 

"It will be a program that will touch every neigh- 
borhood in Chicago," said Daley. 

* * * 

The Mayor told the group at their third meeting 
Thursday that "definite progress" has been made since 
the first meeting Jan. 30. 

The first meeting followed three South Side slum 
fires that took 13 lives in eight days. 

Purpose was to bring about compliance with city 
buildings, fire, health and housing laws, and cut off 
mortgage money and insurance for slum buildings. 

"Essential to this program of rebuilding our neigh- 
borhoods — removing blighted, dangerous and hazard- 
ous slum buildings — is the need for private housing 
for middle-income families," Daley said. 

"This urgent need can no longer be shunted aside 
on the ground that it is extremely difficult and in- 
volved." 

Reviewing what has been accomplished since Jan. 
30, Daley said: 

1. City officials went to Washington and conferred 
with Federal Housing Administration officials about 
requiring evidence of a building permit before im- 
provement loans are guaranteed. 

An FHA team came to Chicago and the proposal 
is under consideration, Daley said. 

2. A group of bankers and savings and loan officials 
adopted a resolution recommending that no improve- 
ment loans be made unless city ordinances are com- 
plied with. 

* * * 

3. The Chicago Mortgage Bankers Association took 
similar action and also recommended a new get-tough 
clause in mortgages. 

4. The Building Department is completing prepara- 
tions to carry out the provisions of a new law requir- 
ing the registration of the owner or agent of all build- 
ings over three units. 

Registration will begin by May 1, Daley said. 

5. The Public Housing Administration sent a team 
here to study a proposal for building public housing 



The Building Department also has set up a division 
to give information concerning the condition of build- 
ings to mortgage and insurance men and others. 

Mayor Daley stressed public cooperation in the pro- 
gram. 

"There has been a definite increase," he said, "in 
applications for permits from the Building Depart- 
ment and the Fire Department has received hundreds 
of calls for inspections." 

"We must and will continue this program," he said. 
"There can be no let-up." 

Tribune, Chicago, III. 
Feb. 1, 1958 

Mayor Daley's Fight on Slums. 

For many years The Tribune has been criticizing 
the city building department and the Municipal court 
for lax enforcement of the building and housing codes. 
We are now glad to give credit to the city and court 
officials who seem to be making a determined effort 
to clean up some of the worst of the slums. 

Mayor Daley has organized a task force of 135 
firemen to inspect buildings in a large area on the 
south side. He has met with mortgage bankers and 
insurance executives, asking them to refuse loans and 
insurance protection to slum racketeers. He has put 
more heat on the building department, and two of the 
department's inspectors have been suspended. The 
Municipal court has assigned additional judges to hear 
housing cases and taken other steps to speed disposi- 
tion of these cases. 

All these measures are the result of indignation 
over recent slum fires that took 13 lives. There is al- 
ways a fiurry of official activity after a disastrous 
fire. Unfortunately, the activity usually subsides after 
a few weeks and the conspirators — both political and 
business — who profit from the slums go on as before. 

Mayor Daley has the power to keep the law enforce- 
ment machinery of the city working steadily, not only 
after tragic fires but all year around. We hope he will 
use this power. We also hope he will have the year 
around support of business men, civic groups, and all 
citizens. Chicago has no more important problem.

Lenders Map Plan to Aid Slum War. 
Twenty-eight bankers and savings and loan associ- 



November 7, 1958

ation officials Tuesday came up with a voluntary plan 
to aid the city's war on slums. 

The plan would halt loans for illegal conversions 
in dwellings. 

The institutions supporting the plan handle 90 per 
cent of home improvement financing in Chicago, ac- 
cording to Fred Heitmann Jr., spokesman for the 
group. 

Loans would not be made until the borrower or con- 
tractor, or both, supplied the lending institution with 
evidence that a building permit has been issued in the 
city. 

Representatives of the group presented the plan to 
Mayor Daley Tuesday. 

It was outlined in a resolution adopted by the home 
loan lenders at a meeting last Wednesday. 

Heitmann, a vice-president of the Northwest Na- 
tional Bank of Chicago issued this statement for the 
group : 

"While it was inconceivable that any lender had in 
the past knowingly extended credit for the purpose 
of financing an illegal conversion, this action on the 
part of Chicago's home improvement lenders would 
indicate their willingness to cooperate in any program 
designed to eliminate illegal conversions." 

The financial officials said their plan would eliminate 
the need for Daley's hope for a change in Federal, 
Housing Administration loan insurance laws. 

Daley recently went to Washington to ask that the 
FHA require evidence that building permits have been 
issued before the FHA grants insurance on Title 1 
(limited to $3,500) home loans. 



Heitmann is a member of FHA Title 1 Advisory 
Committee. 

The resolution was presented to Daley by Heitmann, 
George Spiczak, also a member of the committee and 
vice-president of the Home Federal Savings and Loan 
Association of Chicago, and William Giova, vice-pres- 
ident of the Mid-City National Bank and chairman of 
the Chicago Modernization Credit Group. 

Heitmann said new FHA legislation as proposed by 
Daley would bog down the Title 1 loan program in 
"red tape." 

Daley praised the voluntary plan submitted by the 
financial officials, but did not say wether he would 
continue to seek new FHA legislation.

The Lending institutions which voted to adopt the 
resolution are: 

First National Bank of Chicago, Northwest National 
Bank of Chicago, American National Bank, La Salle

Supplementary Data on Relocation. 

Copy of Information Statement : 

Refer to Exhibits 15, 17 and 18, attached. 

Proposed Rehousing of Families to be Displaced. 

A. Overall Summary of Needs and Resources. 

Characteristics of Relocation Workload. 

Characteristics of residents to be relocated from 
properties to be acquired in the Hyde Park-Kenwood 
Urban Renewal Project are summarized in Tables 1 
through 6, appended to this section of the Relocation 
Plan. The data presented are based on a survey of the 
project area conducted by the National Opinion Re- 
search Center in the spring of 1956. The number of 
families, group households and unrelated individuals 
by race is summarized in Table 1. There are a total 
of 1,837 white families, 2,534 non-white families to be 
relocated in the Urban Renewal Area. Total estimated 
population to be relocated is 19,063; 9,190 white and 
9,873 non-white persons. Of the families, 456 are oc- 
cupant owners and 3,915 are tenants. 

It is of importance to note that of the families to 
be relocated, 1,846 or 42 per cent are two person fam- 
ilies, 1,025 or 23 per cent are three person families. 
This is to say that about two-thirds of the families to 
be relocated are either two or three person families. 

The estimated annual income distribution by size 
of family has been used to compute the number of 
units by size and rent required for relocation. Six 
hundred and ninety-four white families and 1,343 
non-white families are apparently eligible for public 
housing on the basis of income. All of the eligible 
families have incomes of $5,000 or less a year (after 
exemption of $100 for each minor dependent). 

Group households display a marked flexibility in 
their housing needs and no difficulty is anticipated in 
relocating them. 

It is estimated that 332 families will be displaced 
from property not to be acquired. The reasons for this 
displacement will be one or more of the following: 

1) Deconversion of overcrowded and illegally con- 
verted buildings, resulting in fewer dwelling 
units. 

2) Rehabilitation of buildings which in some in- 
stances may require tenant relocation.

In discussing how these resources will satisfy the 
housing needs summarized above, three major groups 
are evident: 

1. Low-rent public housing. 

2. Private sales. 

3. Private standard rental. 

1. Low-Rent Public Housing. 

Out of the 4,371 families estimated to be displaced 
over a 5-year period as a result of this program, 2,036 
are apparently eligible for low-rent public housing 
units on the basis of income only. The characteristics 
of these families, are shown above covering displace- 
ment of families from areas to be acquired. 

The resources available to these families emanate 
both from turnover and new construction. Over the 
5-year period covering the life of this program, it is 
estimated that the following number of low-rent pub- 
lic housing units will be available : 

1958 4,030 

1959 6,040 

1960 5,649 

1961 6,252 

1962 4,070 

Total 26,041 

These 26,041 dwelling units are estimated as. pro- 
viding a continuing resource of units for low-income 
families displaced by public action programs. 

For those families who are ineligible for low-rent 
public housing on grounds other than income, the 
L.P.A. will provide relocation services in finding suit- 
able accommodations within their ability to pay. It 
is recognized that these latter families will require 
greater assistance, a fact which the L.P.A. under- 
stands and a responsibility it fully accepts. 
2. Private Sales Housing. 

It is estimated that percentage-wise the families 
who purchase private sales housing on relocating will 
equal those who presently own.

Therefore, an estimated 456 families ( 255 white and 
201 non-white) will purchase sales housing. The in- 
come statistics indicate a greater potential sales mar- 
ket than the above estimate. This is based on the num- 
ber of families to be relocated with income of $6,000 
a year or higher, and a purchase-to-income ratio of 
21/2 to 1. 

Reference is made to the attached. Report on Liv- 
ing Space for Minorities. These indicate that suffi- 
cient sales housing will be available for those dis- 
placed families who may wish to purchase. 

In addition, Chicago has recently received certifi- 
cation by the Housing and Home Finance Administra- 
tor for 2,000 dwelling units under FHA, Section 221 
(Relocation Housing). These certifications can be used 
for existing as well as new construction. It is too early 
to determine what influence these units may have on 
the housing supply since this is the first application 
for this type of unit in the Chicago area. However, it 
is anticipated that the 221 program will facilitate the 
purchase of existing housing by displaced families. 

Informal discussions with lending institutions, real 
estate brokers, etc., indicate that mortgage money will 
be available for both white and non-white purchasers. 

3. Private Rental Housing. 

The number of families who will be relocated into 
private rental housing from this program is estimated 
at 2,297, or 575 a year. 

By applying a 25% maximum rent-to-income ratio, 
the following rents obtain for the size families indi- 
cated in the table below:

Discussion of the rehousing needs of families ais- 
placed by the urban renewal program must be con- 
sidered in the light of the total housing supply-and- 
demand relationship in the Standard Metropolitan 
Area of Chicago. 

A recent release by the U. S. Bureau of Census 
based upon data collected December, 1956 describes 
the components of change in the housing supplj' since 
the 1950 decennial census. 

Dwelling Units 
Standard Metropolitan 

Area City 



The rents indicated for 2, 3 and 4 person families 
can be met in the private rental housing market in 
Chicago. 

In regard to families of 5 persons or more, it is 
recognized that difficulties will be encountered in find- 
ing standard units of adequate size for those families 
with incomes just above the public housing admission 
limits. The relocation services provided these families 
will be directed toward the secural of available units 
as they come on the market. 

It is significant to call attention to the fact that 
renewal programs will further augment the housirg 
supply. While these new units may not directly serve 
project relocatees, they will help relieve the overall 
market. By the end of 1958, C.L.C.C. projects alone 
will add some 3,200 units. Additional units will be 
added each year after that, including Hyde Park A 
and B, where construction is scheduled to start shortly. 

Every effort will be made to rehouse within the 
community those families desirous of remaining in 
the Hyde Park-Kenwood area. In view of the fact that 
this is such an organized community, it is expected 
that a number of unique approaches will be developed 
for carrying out an orderly relocation program. 

In carrying out this program, the city intends to 
employ a staff to maintain contact with real estate 
agencies, to advertise in newspapers for vacant units, 
to review newspaper ads for available units, and to 
seek the cooperation of real estate agencies and pri- 
vate owners in listing vacancies. It is believed that 
through these efforts and devices a sufficient number 
of standard rental units will be found to satisfy the 
needs of families displaced through this program.

These data indicate that the supply of dwelling 
units is increasing at a faster rate than the popula- 
tion, both within the city and the Standard Metropoli- 
tan Area. 

The National Housing Inventory also included in- 
formation on sub-standardness, vacancies and other 
housing characteristics. 

It is expected that these data, currently being tab- 
ulated, will confirm prevailing local professional opin- 
ion that the number of substandard units in Chicago 
decreased from 1950 to 1956 and that the vacancy 
rate increased substantially. 

Living Space for Minorities. 

It is anticipated that among the 4,371 families to 
be relocated in the Hyde Park-Kenwood Renewal Area 
during the development period of project execution, 
there are approximately 1,837 white and 2,534 non- 
white families, or 58 % non-white families of the total 
number of families to be relocated. During the period 
1957 to 1961 the number of non-white families to be 
displaced by all public programs in the City of Chi- 
cago is estimated at 19,391 out of a total of 34,180 
families. 

A. Housing Units Available for Non-White 
Occupancy. 

The necessary condition in assuring an adequate 
supply of housing for minority group families is that 
the total supply of units be sufficient to meet the total 
demand from all families. 

1. Total Housing Inventory. 

It is estimated that the housing inventory in the 
City of Chicago increased from 1,106,119 dwelling 
units in 1950 to 1,189,182 units by the end of 1956, 



8506 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCII^-CHICAGO 



November 7, 1958 



and increase of 83,063 units. A report on population 
changes issued by the Chicago Community Inventory 
of the University of Chicago in February, 1957, esti- 
mated the 1956 population of Chicago at 3,745,000. 
Based on the 1950 ratio of 3.2 persons per occupied 
dwelling unit, the 1956 population would require ap- 
proximately 1,170,000 dwelling units. There were, 
therefore, some 19,000 surplus dwelling units by the 
end of 1956. It should be noted that the application 
of the 3.2 ratio to the total population exaggerates 
the demand for dwelling units since, in 1950, more 
than four percent of the population occupied non- 
dwelling unit quarters. However, the procedure is ac- 
curate enough for present purposes, and its use is 
advantageous in that it avoids understating the de- 
mand for units. A projection of estimates from 1957 
through 1961 yields a range of from 24,000 to 36,000 
surplus units by the end of 1961, depending on wheth- 
er "high" or "medium" estimates of population growth 
are used. The indicated vacancy rate at the end of 
1956, while not large relative to the total stock of 
housing, represents a significant easing of the hous- 
ing market. This easing is particularly striking in that 
it developed simultaneously with large-scale pubUc 
improvement projects that resulted in the demolition 
of a sizeable number of sub-standard dwelling units. 

2. Housing Newly Available to Non-White Families. 

There is compelling evidence of a constant move- 
ment of non-white families into areas not previously 
occupied by them. This movement is strongly suggest- 
ed by changes in the composition of the population 
of the City of Chicago. While the non-white popula- 
tion was increasing by 197,000 from 1950 to 1956, the 
white population decreased by 73,000. A net decrease 
in the white population of this magnitude could re- 
lease some 22,800 dwelling units for non-white oc- 
cupancy even if there had been no addition to the 
total stock of housing. The change in racial composi- 
tion of the population and the increase in the supply 
of housing units, taken together, point to three pos- 
sible conditions: (1) an increase in the vacancy rate 
of dwelling units available to white families only; 
(2) a decrease in the number of persons per dwell- 
ing unit in units occupied by white families; and (3) 
an increase in the number of dv/elling units available 
to non-white families. Observation of the current hous- 
ing market leads to the conclusion that all three con- 
ditions hold to some extent, but that by far the great- 
est result of changes in population and the supply of 
housing has been the increase in the number of dwell- 
ing units available to minority groups. 

In order to estimate the magnitude of the increase 
in housing for minorities, identifiable dwelling units 
offered for rent or sale in four week-end editions of the 
Chicago Defender during April, 1957, were tabulated 
and classified, insofar as possible, lay location and 
price. Inasmuch as the principal circulation of the 
Defender is among Negroes, it is assumed that all 
units advertised in that newspaper are available to 
non-white families. A total of 4,861 units were offered 
in 33 community areas. In 10 of these areas the popu- 
lation was less than 0.1 percent non-white in 1950. In 
Tables 7 and 8 the increment in standard dwelling 
units available to non-white families is estimated by 
community area, taking into consideration the num- 
ber of units advertised in April, 1957, the percentage 
of dwelling units occupied by non-whites in 1950, the 
proportion of standard dwelling units to total units 
in 1950, and the judgment of staff personnel who are 
familiar with population changes in the various areas. 
No community area was included in which 50 percent 



or more of the total units were sub-standard in 1950. 
On this basis, it is estimated that 62,080 standard 
units have been added to the number of units avail- 
able to non-whites between 1950 and 1957. The esti- 
mated increase in the non-white population of 197,000 
for the same period would require 61,500 units at a 
ratio of 3.2 persons per dwelling unit. 

Some qualifications are necessary in interpreting 
the relationships described above, and in relating them 
to relocation needs for the next five years. Wherever 
judgments were involved in estimating changes, the 
conservative estimate has been used. The elimination 
of community areas with a majority of substandard 
units has undoubtedly resulted in under-estimating 
the increase in standard units for non-white occu- 
pancy. The areas so eliminated, with one exception, 
are those in which projects are located, so that areas 
subject to redevelopment are not counted as re-hous- 
ing resources. Further, the estimates of units added 
to the non-white supply are based on 1950 totals, 
which tends to eliminate new construction, both pub- 
lic and private, in those areas. 

Finally, it is noted that the preceding analysis cov- 
ers changes up to 1957. The underlying factors re- 
sponsible for increased participation by non-whites 
in the total housing market are not only still present, 
but of greater importance. These factors include high 
effective demand, generated by population increase, 
and high levels of employment and income, combined 
with a correspondingly high rate of residential con- 
struction. There is every reason to expect these fac- 
tors to be fully as operative in the immediate future as 
they have been in the recent past. 

As noted the greatest single protection to any one 
minority group family is the Community Conserva- 
tion Board's and Land Clearance Commission's policy 
of relocating families only as rapidly as the avail- 
ability of standard housing facilities permits. 

B. Characteristics of Vacant Units. 

There were 4,861 dwelling units advertised in the 
four weekly editions of the Defender in April, 1957. 
Of these, 822 units were for sale, including both sin- 
gle family houses and multiunit structures. Units for 
sale were strongly concentrated in areas containing 
a high proportion of standard housing. Offerings of 
new houses were insignificant in number. 

Monthly contract rents were specified in 852 cases 
of a total of 4,000 rental units advertised. The rent 
distribution on vacant units is shown in Table 9. As 
a further indication of terms on which standard units 
are available to non-Vv^hite families. Table 10 shows 
rents paid by 297 families relocated from the Land 
Clearance Commission's projects UR 111. 6-6 and 6-7 
during 1955 and 1956. Table 11 shows the estimated 
income distribution by family size of non-white fami- 
lies to be displaced by public programs. On the basis 
of income alone, 14,000 families, or 72 percent of the 
total, are apparently eligible for low income public 
housing. Assuming all of these families could qualify 
for and would accept public housing, approximately 
2,800 units per year would be required. An annual 
average in excess of 5,500 public housing units per 
year is expected to be available through both new 
construction and turnover from 1957 through 1961. 
For those families who are ineligible or who refuse 
public housing, an adequate supply of standard pri- 
vate rental units appear to be available at rents that 
are within the means of a substantial number of non- 
white families.

Supplement.

JOURNAI^-CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO

of the Report on Living Space for Minorities, sliows 
the feasibility of relocating the non-white families 
between 1957 and 1961.1 They show the availability 
of rental units, and of sales housing to displaced fam- 
ilies which desire to purchase units and have the eco- 
nomic resources to do so. Neither report pretends to 
estimate the maximum volume of housing which will 
be readily available to meet the effective demand of 
non-white families during the period from 1957 to 
1961. 

A. Demand for Sales Housing. 

The Land Clearance Commission has found from 
its experience in relocating families that an effective 
demand for sales housing arises chiefly from those 
families who are owner-occupants in project areas. 
For example, there were 604 families in Project UR 
111. 6-6, of which 62 were owner-occupants. Of the 46 
families which purchased homes off-site, 36 had been 
owner-occupants and 11 had been tenants while liv- 
ing in the project area. It can be assumed that fami- 
lies who purchase homes are primarily in the higher 
income brackets. Of the 46 purchasers from Project 
UR 111. 6-7, 25 reported their annual incomes. Thir- 
teen had incomes in excess of $6,000, two between 
$5,000 and $6,000, four between $4,000 and $5,000, 
and six between $3,000 and $4,000. Five of the six 
families with annual incomes of less than $4,000 had 
been owner-occupants. Presumably they were able to 
use the proceeds from the sale of their project area 
residences to buy off-site homes, despite their rela- 
tively low incomes. For ejiample, one owner-occupant 
reporting income of $3,360 purchased an income build- 
ing for $21,000, paying $10,000 down; another with 
income of $3,984 paid $6,000 down on a three-flat 
building; another with income of $3,900 purchased a 
$19,000 building with a down payment of $6,000. 

There are approximately 201 owner-occupants 
among the 2,534 non-white families to be displaced 
in the Hyde Park-Kenwood Renewal Area. Assuming 
a ratio of owners to tenants, there are about 2,900 
owner-occupants among the 19,391 non-white fami- 
lies to be displaced by all public projects. The income 
distribution of non-white families to be displaced, sub- 
mitted in the above portion of the report, shows some 
2,700 families with annual incomes of $5,000 or more. 
On the basis of both income and tenure, it appears 
reasonable to estimate that no more than 3,000 of the 
displaced non-white families will have an effective de- 
mand for sales housing. Assuming an even rate of 
displacement, a maximum of 600 units per year will 
be required. 

B. Supply of Sales Housing. 
1. Existing Houses for Sale. 

There were 822 units offered for Sale in four week- 
end editions of the Chicago Defender during April 
1957. Except for location, the characteristics of these 
units were not tabulated. 

In the week-end edition of the Defender dated June 
29, 1957, there were 264 units offered for sale in 20 
community areas and one surburban town. Sale offer- 
ings were strongly concentrated in a few areas which 
in 1950 were characterized by a high proportion of 
standard dwelling units. Twenty-five units were of- 

1 Although this report was used by the Chicago 
Land Clearance Commission in support of their project 
undertakings during the period, 1957-61, its applica- 
bility to Hyde Park-Kenwood appears clear. 

We are certain only that the estimates are conserva- 
tive, since they are based on events which have either 
transpired or are in the making at the present time. 



fered in community area 29 where, in 1950, 88% of 
all units were standard and the population was 13% 
non-white; 75 units were advertised in community 
area 44 which was 98% standard and less than one 
percent non-white in 1950; 65 units were in area 68 
which was 82% standard and 10.5% non-white in 
1950; and 21 units were located in area 69 where 91% 
of the units were standard and the population was 
5.8% non-white. These figures strongly suggest that 
a large proportion of the units offered for sale are 
not only good quality but represent housing in areas 
not previously occupied by non-white families. In 
fact, units were offered in six areas in which the non- 
white population was less than five percent, and five 
areas in which the non-white proportion was two per- 
cent or less, in 1950. 

As shown in Table 13, 124 of the advertised units 
were single-family houses ranging in size from four 
to 10 rooms. The model size was six rooms ; only three 
had as few as four rooms. Of the 264 multi-unit struc- 
tures, 77 were two-flats, 25 were three-flats, and 34 
had four or more units. Table 15 shows total pur- 
chase price and down payment requirements for sin- 
gle-family houses. Both price and down payment were 
specified in only 16 cases; down payment alone was 
given in 55 cases; and price alone in 20 cases. Prices 
listed ranged from $4,500 to $21,500, with an average 
price of $14,200. Down payment requirements ranged 
from $450 to $7,500, with 33 requiring $2,000 or less 
and 38 more than $2,000. Similar data are shown for 
multi-unit structures in Table 14. Total prices ranged 
from $4,950 to $61,500, and down payments from $700 
to $15,000. 

2. Supply of New Housing. 

Available information indicates that during 1957 
approximately 200 new homes will be constructed in 
the expectation that they will be purchased by non- 
white families. In the absence of major changes in 
economic conditions, it can be expected that at least 
an equal number will be constructed in the immedi- 
ately succeeding years. This expectation is based on 
estimates of a representative of the Dearborn Real 
Estate Board and checks with contractors who are 
now building units which the builders expect to mar- 
ket to non-white families. One contractor reports 70 
houses now ready for occupancy, with an expected 
total of 125 houses within a year. Prices for these 
houses, all with three bedrooms, range from $15,600 
to $18,000 depending on lot location and whether there 
is a basement. Veterans' loans are available, and down 
payments of $2,000 are asked of qualified non-veterans. 
Similar sources indicate that between 150 and 200 
houses for non-white occupancy are now under con- 
struction in surburban areas, under terms comparable 
to those in the city. 

C. Summary and Conclusions. 

It is estimated that a maximum of 600 units of sales 
housing per year will be required by non-white fami- 
lies to be displaced by public programs. Assuming, 
conservatively, that units are on the market for an 
average of four months, current offerings indicate 
nearly 800 existing units per year for sale through 
turnover and from units becoming available for non- 
white occupancy for the first time. Approximately 
200 units per year are expected from new construc- 
tion within the city alone, with an additional 150 to 
200 units in the metropolitan area outside the city. 

The average price of existing single-family houses 
listed for sale is $14,200, while new houses range from 
$15,600 up. At the accepted price to income ratio of 2 
to 21/2, there are an estimated 1,130 non-white fami- 
lies to be displaced who could purchase houses costing

from $12,000 and an additional 1,581 families who 
might be in the market for houses ranging in price 
from $10,000 to $15,000. A price to income ratio, of 
course, is not meaningful in the case of multi-unit 
structures purchased as an investment. Income build- 
ings constitute a significant proportion of units of- 
fered for sale. A similarly high proportion of relo- 
cated families that have purchased buildings have 
purchased income property. 

It is concluded, therefore, that the supply of sales 
housing to be available to non-white families to be 
displaced from project areas, will equal the effective 
demand.

Council 

1011 E. 55th Street 
Chicago 15, Illinois 

General Jeremiah P. Holland 
Community Conservation Board 
Room 506, 320 North Clark Street 
Chicago 10, Illinois 

My dear General Holland : 

We herewith transmit the official report of the Hyde 
Park-Kenwood Conservation Community Council upon 
the Hyde Park-Kenwood Urban Renewal Plan re- 
submitted to us by action of the Community Con- 
servation Board on February 13, 1958. 

May we at once acknowledge the many kindnesses 
and courtesies which we have received from you and 
the members of your staff. 

The Hyde Park-Kenwood Urban Renewal Plan, of 
course, constitutes the first use by the City of Chicago 
of the powers vested in it by the Illinois Urban Com- 
munity Conservation Act. In fact, the Hyde Park- 
Kenwood Conservation Community Council is the first 
Community Council ever to pass upon an Urban Re- 
newal Plan. Because of this, although not strictly 
within the purview of our jurisdiction, it is appropri- 
ate and may be helpful to make certain observations. 

I. 

Any Conservation Plan, of course, must deal with a 
conservation area. The boundaries of such an area, 
however large or however small, circumscribe the 
Urban Renewal Area. It is only within that area that 
the Conservation Plan can operate. 

II. 

There are certain implications of any Conservation 
Plan which are necessarily city wide in nature. In 
the Hyde Park-Kenwood Urban Renewal Plan which 
we have approved, as modified, new efficiencies in co- 
ordinated capital budgeting, the preservation and 
enhancement of the municipal tax base in Hyde Park- 
Kenwood, the preservation and expansion of institu- 
tions, which have served this community in many 
instances for more than half a century, all are of 
benefit to the entire Chicago Metropolitan community. 

The Illinois legislature has wisely provided that: 

"Upon its completion the plan shall be submitted 
to the governing body, together with a request for 
such implementing legislation as may be required 
and within the authority of the governing body and 
the opinion of the Plan Commission of the munici- 
pality, if any, on the merits of the plan." 

We recognize that it is eminently proper and desirable 
that the Renewal Plan be examined by the Chicago 
Plan Commission in terms of the city-wide benefit. 

m. 

No neighborhood or community can ever be an island 
to itself. We recognize a continuing obligation to all 
neighborhoods and all communities throughout the 
city. These efforts and programs, however, must be- 
gin at one place and at one time — sometime and some 
place. The success of the Hyde Park-Kenwood Urban 
Renewal Plan, under the leadership of Mayor Daley 
and yourself, must give heart to all neighborhoods and 
all citizens.

The plan which has been evolved represents the work 
of many hands — not planners alone — not even organ- 
ized citizens' groups alone — but the plain citizens as 
well, who were afforded and accepted the opportunity 
of being heard at the many public hearings held. It is 
our belief that the benefits of this form of renewal 
project as well as the techniques under which it was 
evolved, will and shall carry through for other plans 
in our city.

The Illinois Urban Community Conservation Act im- 
poses the following duties upon a Conservation Com- 
munity Council: 

"The Councils shall : 

(a) Consult with, assist and advise the Board in 
the preparation of the Conservation Plan for 
their respective areas; 

(b) Assist the Board in the administration of the 
Conservation Plan within their respective 
areas ; 

(c) Approve by majority vote as hereinbefore 
provided the Conservation Plan for their re- 
spective areas before it is submitted to the 
governing body, as hereinafter provided; 

(d) Take vigorous appropriate steps to reconsti- 
tute community pride and encourage self-help 
through planned individual and block rehabili- 
tation efforts within their respective areas." 
(Chapter 671/^, Illinois Revised Statutes, Sec- 
tion 91.12). 

III. 

The Conservation Community Council has consulted 
with, assisted and advised the Community Conserva- 
tion Board in the preparation of the Conservation 
Plan for the Hyde Park-Kenwood Urban Renewal 
Area. 

Prior to the appointment of the Conservation Com- 
munity Council, the Community Conservation Board 
has transmitted a Preliminary Project Report to the 
Housing and Home Finance Agency on August 31, 
1956, which report was subsequently approved by 
the Housing and Home Finance Agency on December 
20, 1956, at which time authorization for the prepara- 
tion and completion of a final Conservation Plan was 
received. 

The Conservation Community Council accordingly 
determined that it could best discharge its obligations 
through the holding of public hearings upon the 
Preliminary Project Report in order that all persons 
desiring to be heard, either in support or opposition, 
or urging modification of the various provisions of 
the Preliminary Project Report, could have full oppor- 
tunity to make their views known. In order that 
there be full convenience to all persons desiring to 
be heard, the Conservation Community Council de- 
termined to divide the conservation area into seven 
sectors and to hold a public hearing in each sector. 
Through such device, said hearings were no more 
than a few blocks from the places of residence of 
any of the persons desiring to be heard. Full publi- 
cation of the time and place of each of the said hear- 
ings was had through the local community press and 
all community organizations interested were advised. 
Such hearings were held on the following dates and 
at the following places and were attended by a ma- 
jority of the members of the Conservation Commu- 
nity Council at all times.

In connection with said hearings, the Conservation 
Community Council heard testimony and received 
statements from 71 witnesses. Copies of such state- 
ments received are submitted under separate cover 
accompanying this report as Folios 1 to 71, inclusive. 
Tape recordings were taken of each of these hearings 
and such tapes are also submitted under separate 
cover. 

Following such hearings, the Community Council, as 
a body, toured the entire area on July 11, 1957. It 
then held a total of 7 meetings. It reviewed the Pre- 
liminary Project Report, made suggestions and modi- 
fications thereof and on the 8th day of October, 1957, 
authorized the filing of a proposed final Plan with the 
Community Conservation Board of Chicago. 

IV. 

On February 13, 1958, the Community Conservation 
Board of Chicago, transmitted the Conservation Plan 
for the Hyde Park-Kenwood Urban Renewal Area to 
the Conservation Community Council for its action. 
Thereupon the Conservation Community Council 
caused public notice to be made of the time and place 
of a public hearing to be held upon said Plan, which 
notice was in words and figures, as follows: 
Legal Notice 

Feb. 15, 1958 
On February 13, 1958, the Community Conserva- 
tion Board of Chicago ordered that the Urban Re- 
newal Plan for the Hyde Park-Kenwood Conserva- 
tion Area be filed, and ordered that the Plan be 
transmitted to the Hyde Park-Kenwood Conserva- 
tion Community Council for hearing and report. 

Accordingly, notice is hereby given that the Hyde 
Park-Kenwood Conservation Community Council 
will receive written statements with respect to such 
plan which will be given full and careful considera- 
tion. 

Notice is hereby also given that those persons 
desiring to make an oral presentation to such Coun- 
cil may do so at a public hearing to be held at the 
hour of 7 o'clock P.M. on the 12th day of March, 
1958, at the St. Paul's Episcopal Church, 4945 
South Dorchester Avenue, Chicago. Any person 
desiring to be heard shall file a written notice 
thereof together with a written statement of his 
position, on or before March 7, 1958. Oral presenta- 
tions at such hearing shall be limited to five (5) 
minutes per person. All written notices and state- 
ments shall be filed with David L. Sutton, Chair- 
man of the Hyde Park-Kenwood Conservation Com- 
munity Council, at his office, 1011 East 55th Street, 
Chicago, Illinois. 

David L. Sutton, 
Chairman 

Pursuant to such notice, public hearings upon such 
Plan commenced on the 12th day of March, 1958, at 
7:00 o'clock P.M. at St. Paul's Episcopal Church and 
continued from 7:00 P.M. to 11:15 P.M., and resumed 
on the 13th day of March, 1958, at 7:00 o'clock P.M. 
at St. Paul's Episcopal Church and continued from 
7:00 P.M. to 9:30 P.M. All of the members of the 
Conservation Community Council, with the exception 
of one member who was ill, attended such hearings. 
56 witnesses were heard at such hearings and 94 
written statements were filed. Copies of such state- 
ments so filed are submitted herewith under separate 
cover as Folios 72 to 165. 



Tape recordings were also taken of such hearings and 
under separate cover such tape recordings are filed. 
Each of the hearings held by the Conservation Com- 
munity Council attracted large attendances, often to 
the capacity of the auditoriums in which the hearings 
were held. In the aggregate, it is estimated that at 
least 1500 people attended the various public hear- 
ings. 

Following the public hearings upon the final Con- 
servation Plan, the Council met on March 15, 1958, 
for an all day session, beginning at 9:00 a.m. and 
ending at 5:30 p.m.; on March 20, 1958, beginning 
at 5:30 p.m. and ending at 11:00 p.m.; on April 1, 
1958, beginning at 5:30 p.m. and ending at 10:30 
p.m.; and on April 14, 1958, beginning at 3:30 p.m. 
and ending at 6:00 p.m. 

Two sub-committees to consider particular problems 
were appointed, held separate meetings and then re- 
ported back to the full council. 

V.

munity Council recommends the following changes to 
be made in the Urban Renewal Plan as submitted to 
it by the Community Conservation Board of Chicago

19. The elimination from the Plan of the proposal 
to provide public housing beyond the units 
previously approved by the City. 

In the enumeration of these changes, appropriate ref- 
erence is made to the bases upon which such changes 
were determined. 

VI. 

The Conservation Community Council directs particu- 
lar attention to certain matters, as follows: 

A. Commercial Relocation. Disposition area C-7, 
at 53rd Street and Woodlawn Avenue, was de- 
designated for reuse for commercial purposes. 
A group of local merchants have organized 
themselves as a cooperative group and have ad- 
vised the Conservation Community Council of 
their desire to acquire such property for com- 
mercial reuse on behalf of themselves. 

In the view of the Conservation Community 
Council local businessmen, such as those asso- 
ciated in this proposed acquisition, have a 
strong, moral and appealing case for considera- 
tion. They have constantly supported conserva- 
tion programs and activities in the Hyde Park- 
Kenwood Urban Renewal Area. As business 
tenants, in most instances, compensation avail- 
able under the law for the dislocation of their 
businesses is not adequate. As independent mer- 
chants, they render a vital and needed service 
to the community which will be fostered and 
continued if they are permitted to negotiate for 
and acquire this site at a fair reuse price. 

B. Owner Occupancy 

46.1% of all structures in the Urban Renewal 
Area are one-family structures generally owned 
by their occupants; and 7.7% are two-family 
structures. The Urban Renewal Plan is directed 
primarily toward the provision of parks, schools, 
and such other facilities which contribute to the 
encouragement of family living. Of the 2,350 
of new units proposed, 425 are houses and homes 
designed for family living; predicated upon the 
design of units in Hyde Park A and B, 40% of 
all apartments will also be so designed. 
In the judgment of the Conservation Community 
Council, the fact of home ownership is one of 



8514 



JOURNAI^-CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



November 7, 1958 



the essential strengths of the Urban Renewal 
Area. Owner occupied structures tend to be 
better maintained and kept than those of ab- 
sentee owners. As noted in the Zisook Report, 
home owners are often inclined to invest sub- 
stantial sums into the improvement of their own 
living accommodations far and beyond what an 
investor seeking a return would do. 

Accordingly, the Conservation Community Coun- 
cil has devoted painstaking consideration to 
those instances where clearance of owner occu- 
pied structures is recommended in the Urban 
Renewal Plan and has proceeded to approve 
such recommendations only in those instances 
where, in the judgment of the Conservation 
Community Council, such clearance is clearly 
necessary in order to obtain the objectives of 
the Urban Renewal Plan. The Conservation 
Community Council further recommends in the 
execution of the Urban Renewal Plan that par- 
ticular attention and assistance be directed to 
owner occupied structures in order that their 
rehabilitation and modernization be facilitated 
and encouraged. 

C. New Rental Housing Construction 

In consideration of new construction, the Con- 
servation Community Council is aware that bare 
construction costs in the Chicago Metropolitan 
Area in walk-up structures approximates $12.00 
and more per square foot and from $12.00 to 
$16.00 per square foot in elevator structures, 
all exclusive of costs of land, financing charges 
and interest, landscaping or owners' profit. Bare 
construction costs in rental housing, again ex- 
clusive of land, financing, real estate taxes and 
operating expenses, will approximate $2700.00 
per room. 

In these circumstances, reasonable rentals in 
new construction require the utmost in ingenui- 
ty, design and financing. Accordingly, the Con- 
servation Community Council urges that in the 
disposition of land, great effort be made to en- 
list the assistance and support of the Chicago 
Dwellings Association, the organization of co- 
operatives and the development of financial re- 
sources through the participation of pension 
funds, etc. 

D. Institutions 

The institutions serving the Urban Renewal 
Area are deeply rooted in the community. Their 
presence represents the generosity and thought- 
fulness of past generations of Chicagoans. They 
should be encouraged and assisted in the ful- 
fillment of their responsibilities in order to in- 
sure the richness of community life character- 
istic of the Urban Renewal Area. Accordingly, 
the Conservation Community Council has given 
full consideration to the needs of these institu- 
tions : 

1) St. Paul's Episcopal Church, in its 99th 
year, is rebuilding after two tragic fires in 
1956. Land adjoining this church (Disposi- 
tion Area 1-2) is provided in the Urban 
Renewal Plan in order that an adequate 
site be available. 

2) St. Thomas the Apostle Church has served 
the Hyde Park Community from the days 
when it was but a Mission of old St. James 
Parish. Approximately 2500 communicants 
attend church every Sunday. The elemen- 
tary school has an enrollment of approxi- 
mately 650 children and the high school 
approximately 250 children. Space where 



children may safely play during school 
hours and where parishioners who come 
from all over the renewal area may find 
off-street parking during religious service 
is provided (Disposition Area I-l) in the 
Urban Renewal Plan for St. Thomas the 
the Apostle Church. 

3) The United Church of Hyde Park in a merg- 
er of two earlier institutions whose history 
date back to 1865 in Hyde Park. Parish- 
ioners of this Church come to it also from 
all over the renewal area. Space for off- 
street parking (Disposition Area I-IO) is 
provided in the Urban Renewal Plan for the 
United Church of Hyde Park. 

4) The Augustana Lutheran Church ha,s serv- 
ed the Hyde Park Community since 1903. 
Its present location at 54th and Kimbark 
Avenue is in the block to be devoted to the 
Murray Park. At the request of the Church, 
the Urban Renewal Plan is amended to pro- 
vide for the acquisition of the present 
Church premises for inclusion in the Mur- 
ray Park and for the relocation of the 
Church at 55th Street and Woodlawn to 
Kimbark Avenues (Disposition Area 1-14) 
for the erection of a new Church and a 
student center. 

5) Rodfei Zedek Congregation has served the 
Hyde Park Renewal Area for half a centu- 
ry. Its present facilities on Hyde Park Bou- 
levard, near 53rd Street, represent an in- 
vestment made by its members of more 
than $1,000,000 within the past five years. 
In the Urban Renewal Plan, space for ex- 
pansion and off-street parking (Disposition 
Area 1-15) is provided for Rodfei Zedek 
Congregation. 

6) The First Baptist Church has been located 
at 50th Street and Ellis Avenue since 1919. 
Approximately 350 communicants attend 
church every Sunday. The Sunday school 
has an enrollment of approximately 300. 
The area at 5008 and 5012 Ellis Avenue 
(Disposition Area 1-12) is to be sold to the 
Church for the development of a nursery 
and other church purposes. 

7) The Episcopal Church Home for the Aged 
has been in Hyde Park since 1915. Approxi- 
mately 100 aged persons are housed by this 
Home. Space adjacent to the Home (Dis- 
position Area 1-7) is provided in the Urban 
Renewal Plan for open recreational area. 

8) The Chicago Osteopathic Hospital and Col- 
lege have been a part of Hyde Park for 40 
years. The out-patient clinic serves 57,000 
patient visits per year; 240 students are 
studying at its medical school. More space 
for hospital and clinic buildings, for college 
dormitories and for faculty and student 
residences (Disposition Area 1-5) is pro- 
vided in the Urban Renewal Plan for the 
continued growth of these institutions. 

9) George Williams College is one of two in 
the United States, primarily dedicated to 
the training for professional leadership in 
the Young Men's Christian Association. 
Alumni of this College are in key human 
relation positions throughout the United 
States. The College is in need of increased 
facilities. Land for campus expansion (Dis- 
position Area 1-4) is provided in the Urban 
Renewal Plan for the expansion of the 
campus of the George Williams College .

10) The Hyde Park Department of the Young 
Men's Christian Association has served the 
community at 53rd Street and Madison Ave- 
nue (now Dorchester) since December 30, 
1906. More than 2000 boys per year, as 
well as 150 seniors, participate in its pro- 
gram. Space for supervised play and park- 
ing (Disposition Area 1-3) is provided in 
the Urban Renewal Plan for the Hyde Park 
Department of the Young Men's Christian 
Association. 

11) The Hyde Park Nursery Association pro- 
vides day care for working mothers. Its 
nursery is presently located at 54th Street 
and Lake Park Avenue in the area of the 
land clearance of the Hyde Park A project. 
The Chicago Child Care Society by agree- 
ment with the Welfare Council of Metro- 
politan Chicago assumed responsibility for 
the operation of this day nursery in 1957. 
Headquarters of the Chicago Child Care 
Society are presently located at 5494 South 
Kenwood, in an area to be cleared for the 
Murray Park. Property at 54th Place and 
University (Disposition Area 1-16) is pro- 
vided in the Urban Renewal Plan for the 
relocation of the Chicago Child Care Soci- 
ety. 

12) The Jewish Children's Bureau will be a new 
institution to Hyde Park but not to the City 
of Chicago. It proposes to build a treat- 
ment center for disturbed children whereby 
children on a non-sectarian basis from all 
over the City of Chicago will be served and 
whereby, also, research will be undertaken 
in the advancement of knowledge as to the 
treatment of such children, and finally 
housekeepers, teachers, social workers, psy- 
chologists and group workers can be trained 
and educated. Space for such an institution 
(Disposition Area 1-6) is provided in the 
Urban Renewal Plan for the Jewish Chil- 
dren's Bureau. 

13) The George Harding Museum is located at 
4853 Lake Park Avenue. This museum con- 
tains one of the finest collections of medie- 
val armor to be found in the United States. 
While the Trustees of the Harding Museum 
have not determined upon a site for reloca- 
tion, the Conservation Community Council 
commends to their consideration a site on 
Stony Island Avenue, immediately south of 
59th Street. 

E. Cultural and Art Center 

The Conservation Community Council directs 
particular attention to the proposed cultural 
and art center at 57th Street and Stony Island 
Avenue. In the judgment of the Council, this 
particular reuse is most appropriate, particu- 
larly in light of proximity of the Museum of 
Science and Industry. The Conservation Com- 
munity Council hopes that in the development 
of this site, provision may be made for a mu- 
nicipal art center. 

VII. 
80% of all structures in the Urban Renewal Area 
will remain. The success of the Urban Renewal Plan 
requires that these structures be rehabilitated and 
modernized. In that regard, the Conservation Com- 
munity Council urges: 
A. Financing 

That negotiations presently underway for the 
development of a $30,000,000 pool of mortgage 
financing be completed in that owners of prop- 
erties be assured of the ready availability of 



needed credit. The Conservation Community 
Council is most appreciative of the efforts of 
General Jeremiah P. Holland and the Staff of 
the Community Conservation Board in this par- 
ticular ; 

B. Site Office 

That the Community Conservation Board of 
Chicago open an office in the Urban Renewal 
Area for the purpose of assisting owners in the 
rehabilitation and modernization of their prop- 
erties and in directing them to the appropriate 
specialists who may assist in that regard; and 

C. Code Enforcement 

That continuing rigorous code enforcement be 
carried on by the appropriate municipal author- 
ities to prevent the further spread of slum and 
blight in the Urban Renewal Area. In this re- 
gard the Conservation Community Council notes 
that not all slum buildings present in the area 
are being cleared in the Urban Renewal Plan. 
The Urban Renewal Plan provides, however, for 
an ear-marked allocation of additional funds for 
the clearance of additional properties where 
rehabilitation is not accomplished. 
VIII. 
The staging of acquisition and demolition of proper- 
ties so indicated in the Urban Renewal Plan is of 
crucial importance. The Conservation Community 
Council notes that upon implementation of the Urban 
Renewal Plan, title of properties so to be acquired 
inevitably will be clouded and owners desiring to sell 
their properties will find the Community Conservation 
Board to be the only possible purchaser. The Con- 
servation Community Council also notes that the ex- 
istence of large tracts of vacant property without re- 
building is demoralizing to the community. Accord- 
ingly, the Conservation Community Council urges: 

1) that the Community Conservation Board estab- 
lish flexibility in procedures in the staging of 
acquisition of properties in that owners of prop- 
erties marked for demolition be enabled to dis- 
pose of them to the Community Conservation 
Board as rapidly as possible; and 

2) that in the staging of acquisitions and demoli- 
tion that all effort be made to reduce the time 
interval between acquisition and demolition and 
subsequent reuse to the shortest possible rea- 
sonable time. 

IX. 
The Conservation Community Council recognizes that 
the relocation of displaced families and persons is of 
particular and poignant importance in the considera- 
tion of the Urban Renewal Plan. Table I following 
is the number and percent of families, group house- 
holds and unrelated individuals to be relocated in the 
Hyde Park-Kenwood Urban Renewal program.

Source: Chicago Housing Authority. 
Predicated upon these tables, the Conservation Com- 
munity Council has determined: 

1) of the total of 4528 families to be relocated, 
3743 or 82.7% are two, three or four person families; 

2) between 1950 and December, 1956, there has 
been a 16.9% increase in the number of dwelling 
units in the standard metropolitan area and a 5.3% 
increase in the number of dwelling units in the City 
of Chicago. Such percentage of increase exceeds the 
percentage of population increase since 1950 ; 

3) a total of 2120 families will be displaced by the 
Hyde Park-Kenwood Urban Renewal program through- 
out its period of performance who are eligible for 
public housing; 

4) the public housing available to the City of Chi- 
cago for the period from 1958 through 1962 is esti- 
mated at 26,041 units, consisting of 9341 which will 
be available from new construction and 16,700 through 
turn-over. Since the percentage of turn-over is great- 
est in the smaller units and since of the total of 2114 
eligible families in excess of 1700 consist of two, 
three and four person families, it appears that pres- 
ent and authorized public housing programs of the 
City of Chicago can accommodate such demand; and 

5) an analysis of all existing and potential city pro- 
grams, providing relocation loads, measured against 
available resources, convinces the Conservation Com- 
munity Council that the relocation problems incident 
to the Hyde Park-Kenwood Urban Renewal program 
can be met within the spirit and the requirements of 
law. 

-X- * * 

The Conservation Community Council emphasizes 
that, in its judgment, relocation is a public trust and 
responsibility which can be properly discharged only 
by the most painstaking attention to the rights and 
welfare of all families affected, 

X. 

Accordingly, the Hyde Park-Kenwood Conservation 
Community Council, as provided in the Urban Com- 
munity Conservation Act of Illinois, does hereby ap- 



prove the Conservation Plan as transmitted to it un- 
der date of February 13, 1958, and as modified herein.

SUPPLEMENTAL REPORT OF HYDE PARK- 
KENWOOD CONSERVATION COMMUNITY 
COUNCIL 

July 28, 1958 

Community Conservation Board of Chicago 

320 North Clark Street 

Chicago, Illinois 

Attention: General J. P. Holland, Commissioner 

Gentlemen : 

The undersigned, Hyde Park-Kenwood Conservation 
Community Council, acting pursuant to the Urban 
Community Conservation Act of Illinois herewith sub- 
mits its supplemental report relative to the Hyde 
Park-Kenwood Urban Renewal Plan, as follows: 



Heretofore, on April 21, 1958, the undersigned Coun- 
cil submitted its original report relative to the Hyde 
Park-Kenwood Urban Renewal Plan to the Commu- 
nity Conservation Board of Chicago. Subsequent 
thereto, the Community Conservation Board of Chi- 
cago, by letter dated July 16, 1958, a copy of which 
is attached hereto, made a part hereof and marked 
Exhibit 1, requested approval by the Council of cer- 
tain revisions to the said Hyde Park-Kenwood Urban 
Renewal Plan. 

II. 

Pursuant to such request, the undersigned Council 
has reviewed the recommendations made therein and 
has acted thereon as follows : 

A — Approved exclusion from acquisition: 

1) 933-55 East 47th Street — 4701-07 Ingleside 
Avenue — 4700-08 Ellis Avenue — 901-31 
East 47th Street — 4700-08 Ingleside Avenue 
— 4701-07 Drexel Boulevard — 4700-12 Drex- 
el Boulevard — 833-47 East 47th Street — 
813-27 East 47th Street — 801-09 East 47th 
Street — 4701-09 Cottage Grove Avenue 

These properties were to be acquired in connec- 
tion with the widening of 47th Street. Copy of 
letter, dated July 16, 1958, from L. M. Johnson, 
Commissioner, Department of Streets and Sanita- 
tion, and Leslie J. Sorenson, Deputy Commissioner, 
Department of Streets and Sanitation of the City 
of Chicago, directed to J .P. Holland, Commissioner 
of the Community Conservation Board of Chicago, 
is attached hereto, made a part hereof and marked 
Exhibit 2.

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCII^-CHICAGO 



November 7, 1958 



The Council notes that General Holland, L. Hill, 
Staff Planner of the Community Conservation 
Board, and I. Bach, Commissioner of Planning of 
the City of Chicago, personally appeared before the 
undersigned Council and stated that the sum of 
$200,000.00, previously designated for use in con- 
nection with the widening of 47th Street, would 
now be expended on additional interior street im- 
provements in the urban renewal area. 

In reliance upon said Exhibit 2 and the repre- 
sentations heretofore set forth, the undersigned 
Council has determined that the above-mentioned 
properties may be excluded from acquisition under 
the urban renewal plan. 

2) 5147-57 Cottage Grove Ave. —800-16 East 
52nd St. — 5201-33 Cottage Grove Ave. 

The property at 5201-33 Cottage Grove Avenue is 
owned and operated by the Chicago Transit Au- 
thority for the parking and servicing of Chicago 
Transit Authority equipment. The said Chicago 
Transit Authority, by letter dated July 21, 1958, a 
copy of which is attached hereto, made a part 
hereof and marked Exhibit 3, advised General Hol- 
land, Commissioner of the Community Conservation 
Board of Chicago, that the said Chicago Transit 
Authority is unwilling to dispose of said property. 
Since the Chicago Transit Authority is a public 
authority, the City of Chicago, acting through the 
Community Conservation Board, cannot compel the 
sale of the said property and in the event that such 
premises are not available, the premises at 5147- 
57 Cottage Grove Avenue and 800-16 East 52nd 
Street would not provide an adequate site for re- 
development. 

Accordingly, the undersigned Council, acting in 
reliance upon the said letter (Exhibit 3) has de- 
termined that said premises may be excluded from 
acquisition under the urban renewal plan. 

3) 820-34 East 51st Street 
5036-38 Drexel Boulevard 
5042-52 Drexel Boulevard 

With regard to the above properties, Mr. Alex 
Zimmerman, acting on behalf of Commissioner 
George Ramsey, Department of Buildings of the 
City of Chicago, personally appeared before and 
advised the Council that in his judgment these pro- 
perties could be rehabilitated and maintained in 
compliance with the building and other applicable 
codes and ordinances o fthe City of Chicago. 

The undersigned Council, in consideration of the 
total disposition sector in which said properties are 
included, and in reliance upon the representations 
described above, has determined that said proper- 
ties may be excluded from acquisition under the 
urban renewal plan. 

B — ^Approved inclusion in acquisition, but without 
subsidy : 

1 ) 5255 South Cornell Avenue 
1630-40 East 53rd Street 

These premises are improved with the Elms 
Hotel — a structure more than sixty (60) years old. 
In the judgment of the undersigned Council the 
said property, if so dealt with, should be made 
available to a developer at acquisition costs and 
without subsidy under the urban renewal plan. 

C — Approved inclusion for acquisition : 

1) 4853-59 Cottage Grove Avenue — 800-12 East 
49th Street 

The undersigned Council accedes to the recom- 
mendation of the Building Department of the City 



of Chicago and the Community Conservation Board 
of the City of Chicago that the property in question 
should be acquired and cleared and in reliance 
thereon includes the above premises for acquisi- 
tion under the urban renewal plan. 

D — Approved retention for acquisition : 

1) 5001-15 Cottage Grove Avenue 

In the judgment of the undersigned Council, 
these premises must be acquired in order to provide 
adequate and required park and playground space 
for the Chicago Housing Authority Development 
at 50th Street and Cottage Grove Avenue and the 
Reavis School at 50th Street and Drexel Boulevard. 
The need for such facilities are of over-riding im- 
portance and the undersigned Council has deter- 
mined accordingly that the said premises must be 
acquired under the urban renewal plan. 

2) 5300-06 South Woodlawn Avenue — 1161-77 
East 53rd Street 

With regard to the above premises, the Council 
notes that the record of said premises as described 
by Mr. Alex Zimmerman, acting on behalf of Com- 
missioner George Ramsey of the Building Depart- 
ment of the City of Chicago, includes task force 
inspections, a history of numerous violations and 
fines. While the exterior of said premises appear 
sound — interior maintenance has permitted the said 
premises to reach the condition of deterioration as 
to discourage and thwart rehabilitation, improve- 
ment and sound maintenance of adjoining and ad- 
jacent structures. Accordingly the undersigned 
Council has determined that said property must be 
acquired under the urban renewal plan. 

3) 5492-94 South Cornell Avenue 

5496-98 South Cornell Avenue — 1616-20 East 
55th Street 

With regard to the above premises, the Council 
was advised by Mr. Alex Zimmerman, acting on 
behalf of Commissioner George Ramsey of the 
Building Department of the City of Chicago, that 
said premises presently contain 65 dwelling units 
and 41 single rooms, in lieu of approximately 28 
original apartments. 

In the judgment of the Council the conversion 
of said structure with its consequent over-use and 
excessive wear and tear, has permitted the said 
premises to reach such a condition of deterioration 
as to discourage and thwart rehabilitation, improve- 
ment and sound maintenance of adjoining and re- 
lated structures. Accordingly the undersigned Coun- 
cil has determined that said premises must be 
acquired under the urban renewal plan. 

4) 5000-08 South Harper Avenue — 1463-67 East 
50th Street 

5012-20 South Harper Avenue 

5001-09 South Blackstone Avenue 

1449-51 East 50th Street 

With regard to the above premises, the Council 
notes mixed commercial and residential uses, in- 
cluding an automotive use and residences in one 
building, deteriorated exterior and interior main- 
tenance, total land coverage — all resulting in dele- 
terious conditions bordering the Kenwood School. 
The Council further notes that the Kenwood School 
has approximately one thousand (1000) pupils and 
is without adequate play space and requires all of 
the land which can be made available to it. 

In the judgment of the undersigned Council, the 
encouragement of the Board of Education in pro- 



^SiCTWi 



November 7, 1958

viding adequate school facilities is essential to the 
success of the entire urban renewal plan. Accord- 
ingly, the undersigned Council has determined that 
said premises must be acquired under the urban 
renewal plan. 

III. 

Rehahilitation. The section on rehabilitation is clari- 
fied to read, as follows : 

"Other Areas: 

1. Any building, other than those designated for 
acquisition and clearance herein, that is re- 
habilitated to and kept in compliance with mini- 
mum existing code standards, will not be ac- 
quired except where it becomes evident during 
the operation of this plan, that the acquisition 
and clearance of said building or buildings, is 
useful, advantageous or desirable for municipal 
purposes or public welfare. (See: Illinois Revised 
Statutes, Eminent Domain — Chapter 24-19)." 

Accordingly, the language of the urban renewal 
plan is clarified in accordance with this intention. 

IV. 

The undersigned Council directs particular attention 
to its previous report filed herein on April 21, 1958, 
and to the provisions of the urban renewal plan on 
the following specific matters : 

A — Relocation 

The Council calls attention to the fact that it is 
a requirement of law, as well as an express con- 
dition of the urban renewal plan, that no families 
be relocated except to decent, safe and sanitary 
housing reasonably accessible to their places of 
employment. 

The Council emphasizes that it has stated and 
continues to hold that relocation is a public re- 
sponsibility and public trust which must be dealt 
with in a humane and proper manner. 

B — The Council reaffirms its concern relative to 
middle income housing. It directs attention to the 
provisions of the urban renewal plan and to the 
portions of its original report directed to the en- 
couragement of cooperatives and of the Chicago 
Dwellings Association in the erection of new hous- 
ing. 

C — Enforcement 

The Council reaffirms its concern relative to the 
vigorous and effective enforcement of the housing, 
building, health and sanitation codes and ordinances 
of the City of Chicago within the urban renewal 
area. In the judgment of the Council, the plan and 
all efforts in its behalf will fail without such en- 
forcement. 

V. 

The undersigned Council notes with regret the delays 
which have occurred in the implementation of the 
urban renewal plan. In the judgment of the Council 
such delays not only contribute to the further dete- 
rioration of the urban renewal area but work a hard- 
ship upon property owners, tenants and citizens who 
are unable to plan their own future courses of action 
so long as the urban renewal plans remains unsolved. 

The undersigned Council further notes that in its 
judgment the proposals acceded to herein reduce the 
urban renewal plan to its minimum workable scope 
and effectiveness. In the judgment of the Council, 
any further diminuition of the program will render 
it a failure and accordingly it has been agreed be- 
tween the undersigned Council and the Community 



Conservation Board of Chicago that no further re- 
quests or proposals for cut-backs be made.

Hyde Park-Kenwood Conservation 

Community Council 

5807 South Dorchester Avenue 

Chicago, Illinois 

Dear Members : 

Attention: Mr. David Sutton 
At the outset, we would' like to thank individually the 
members of the Conservation Community Council for 
their willingness to devote the additional time and en- 
ergy in continued consideration of the project in which 
we have so keen a mutual interest. 

In our letter to the Council under date of June 27 of 
this year, we advised you of certain modifications 
which the Board recommended in connection with the 
Plan you had theretofore approved. These modifica- 
tions were suggested on the basis of two general 
objectives : 

1. The conservation, insofar as possible, of the funds 
with which the City of Chicago is able to match 
federal grants in connection with Urban Renewal 
Programs over the city as a whole, and 

2. The preservation, wherever possible without da- 
mage to the Hyde Park-Kenwood Plan, of build- 
ings scheduled for demolition which are in good 
condition and can, if so preserved, continue to 
serve their function in the provision of vitally 
needed housing. 

At the time of our original communication to you out- 
lining certain specific suggestions to the end of at- 
taining the above objectives, we simultaneously noti- 
fied the Mayor and the City agencies involved of our 
intentions. Because of the great personal interest 
which the Mayor has in the whole Urban Renewal 
Program and his intense desire to move forward 
promptly and effectively in this area, he called to- 
gether the leading technicians and administrators 
concerned and directed that they at once thoroughly 
review our proposals. 

In consequence of these deliberations (in which our 
staff joined), we have revised our recommendations 
and are now presenting our amended decision with 
respect to the modification of the original Plan. As 
you will note from the details hereinafter contained, 
the present program provides for considerably less 
revision than was contained in our letter of June 27. 



8520 



JOURNAI^-CITY COUNCII^-CHICAGO 



November 7, 1958 



-4700-08 Ingleside Avenue 



Prior to resubmitting our proposals for your consider- 
ation, we have met at length with the technicians who 
authored the original plan. Whereas we do not here 
speak for them, it is our hope that they agree that 
the proposals hereinbelow made do not in any mate- 
rial respect impair the effectiveness or desirability 
of the original plan. 

It is the unanimous and considered opinion of the 
members of the Board, the heads of City Departments 
involved, and the technicians who consulted with the 
Mayor that the program suggested here accomplishes 
the goals of the original plan. It is our hope that the 
members of the Council will share this conviction. 

Hereinbelow are our recommendations which have 
been changed from those contained originally in our 
letter of June 27. 

It is proposed at the present time not to widen 47th 
Street. It is believed by the Department of Streets 
that 47th Street can accommodate the additional 
traffic caused by changing the interior street pattern. 
In furtherance of this proposal the area east of Ellis 
Avenue along 47th Street should be redeveloped and 
the buildings in the area west of Ellis Avenue along 
47th Street should remain standing. 

The buildings included in the above paragraph are: 

933-55 East 47th Street— 4701-07 Ingleside Avenue 
— 4700-08 Ellis Avenue 

901-31 East 47th Street- 
—4701-07 Drexel Blvd. 

4700-12 Drexel Boulevard— 833-47 East 47th Street 

813-27 East 47th Street 

801-09 East 47th Street 

—4701-09 Cottage Grove Avenue 

These buildings are in good condition and will par- 
tially meet the demands for middle-income housing. 

4853-59 Cottage Grove Avenue— 800-12 East 49th St. 

Although this building is without any major build- 
ing code violations it could effect the redevelopment 
plan of Cottage Grove Avenue between 48th and 
49th Streets. The building is approximately 58 
years old. It is proposed that the building be placed 
in the acquisition plan. 

5001-15 Cottage Grove Avenue 

Presently occupied by the United States Post Office. 
It is proposed that this building remain standing, 
as it should not materially affect the proposed park 
redevelopment. 

820-34 East 51st Street 

This is a three story apartment building, court yard 
plan arrangement. The building is 35 years old and 
it appears to be in good condition. This building 
will partially meet the demands for middle-income 
housing. 

5036-38 Drexel Blvd. 

5042-52 Drexel Blvd. 

These buildings, thru enforcement of the building 
code, could be rehabilitated to partially meet the 
demands for middle-income housing. 



5147-57 Cottage Grove Ave.- 
5201-33 Cottage Grove Ave. 



-800-16 East 52nd St. 



Empire storage and C.T.A. garage. These buildings 
are on the periphery of the area and their retention 
should not materially affect the plan. 



5300-06 So. Woodlawn Ave.— 1161-77 E. 53rd St. 

This is a three-story apartment building and it is 
believed that if it is retained it will provide for 
middle-income housing. 

5000-08 So. Harper Ave.— 1463-67 East 50th St. 

5012-20 So. Harper Ave. 

5001-09 So. Blackstone Ave. 

1449-51 East 50th St. 

It is proposed that the land that is to be purchased 
and held in reserve for the Board of Education be 
now offered to the Board in lieu of the land which 
is to be purchased for the Kenwood School. It is 
to be noted that the Board of Education has not 
appropriated, at this time, funds to purchase these 
parcels to be reserved for them. The following 
statement has been made by the Board of Educa- 
tion regarding the land to be reserved: 

"The said urban renewal plan further provides 
that 1.98 acres adjacent to the Kenwood School 
should be acquired by the Community Conserva- 
tion Board of Chicago and reserved for acquisi- 
tion by the Board of Education should the board 
subsequently determine the desirability for such 
acquisition." 

In order to preserve relatively sound buildings, it 
is proposed that the buildings south of the Kenwood 
School remain standing to provide housing for the 
middle-income group . 

5255 So. Cornell Ave. 

1630-40 East 53rd Street (Elms Hotel) 

This property should remain in the acquisition plan, 
with a proviso that it be made available to a devel- 
oper at acquisition cost, for the redevelopment of 
the Cornell Block, if necessary for the reuse devel- 
opment. 

5492-94 So. Cornell Ave. 

5496-98 So. Cornell Ave.— 1616-20 E. 55th St. 

It is proposed that these buildings be retained in 
order to provide middle-income housing. 

The appraised value of all of the above properties is 
$8,180,000.00, and the addresses have been taken 
from Sanborn Maps. (Four appraisals estimated) 

In order to clarify the section relating to rehabilita- 
tion of structures it is proposed that buildings which 
are in conformance with the city code standards will 
not be acquired. 

The technicians, who are available, and who originally 
considered the Plan on the part of the Mayor, as well 
as available members of the Community Conservation 
Board will be present at the meeting on June 21, 1958, 
for comment, information and explanation. 

The Community Conservation Board requests your 
consideration of and concurrence with the above pro- 
posals. 

Sincerely yours, 

Community Conservation Board of Chicago

General Jeremiah P. Holland, Commissioner 
Community Conservation Board 
320 N. Clark Street 
Chicago 10, Illinois 

Dear General Holland: 

We have been advised that during a conference and 
review of the Hyde Park-Kenwood Community Con- 
servation Plan at the University of Chicago, Wednes- 
day, July 9, a direct question was raised with refer- 
ence to the possible effect that the withdrawal from 
the plan of the 47th Street widening would have on 
the proposed interior street pattern. 

This matter has been reviewed and we are prepared 
to advise you that withdrawal of our proposal to wid- 
en 47th Street in the Hyde Park-Kenwood Area would 
not adversely affect the implementation and operation 
of the proposed interior street plan. 

The construction of Preferential Streets to the re- 
quired standards is intended to be completed by the 
time total traffic demand, which includes that on the 
major street (47th Street) along with that displaced 
from the minor or interior street — when the traffic 
plan for the area becomes effective — has grown to an 
amount which will exceed the capacity of these streets. 

Our estimates of anticipated traffic volume for 47th 
Street indicate that it will not be operating above ca- 
pacity during the period of development of the Hyde 
Park-Kenwood Area. At such time in the future that 
this condition does develop, the necessary additional 
right of way will be acquired and construction com- 
pleted. 

It is therefore our opinion that there will be no 
adverse effect on the future widening of 47th Street, 
provided that the new right of way line is adhered 
to in all instances where property has or will come 
under the jurisdiction of the Community Conserva- 
tion Board.

In re: C.T.A. Bus Garage 

5201-5235 Cottage Grove Ave. 
Dear Mr. Holland: 

In response to your inquiry relative to the acquisi- 
tion of the bus garage at the above location, this is to 
advise that the property cannot be sold as it is nec- 
essary for operating purposes, and is in a strategic 



location for several bus routes operating in that vi- 
cinity. 

We are sorry we cannot comply with your request, 
as in event of sale, we would be faced with an expen- 
diture of more than a million dollars to replace this 
facility. 

Yours very truly.

Attention: General J. P. Holland, Commissioner 
Gentlemen : 

The Hyde Park-Kenwood Conservation Community 
Council, acting pursuant to the Urban Community 
Conservation Act of Illinois, submits its second sup- 
plemental report relative to the Hyde Park-Kenwood 
Urban Renewal Plan, as follows: 

I. 

On April 21, 1958, this Council submitted its original 
report on the Plan. On July 28, 1958, after consulta- 
tion with the Community Conservation Board and 
other agencies and departments of the City of Chica- 
go, this Council submitted its first supplemental re- 
port approving certain modifications in the Plan. The 
Plan as so modified waS reviewed by the Housing 
and Home Finance Agency of the United States. By 
letter dated September 8, 1958, the Regional Adminis- 
trator of the Housing and Home Finance Agency ad- 
vised the Community Conservation Board of the 
results of its review and recommended two further 
modifications in the Plan : 

(1) That the voluntary rehabilitation stand- 
ards and objectives should be made part of the 
Plan; and 

(2) That the Urban Renewal project area 
should be delineated to exclude that part of the area 
in the Development Plan of the South West Hyde 
Park Neighborhood Redevelopment Corporation de- 
scribed as the "Acquisition Area." 

n. 

The Hyde Park-Kenwood Conservation Community 
Council has reviewed the recommendations made by 
the Housing and Home Finance Agency and has unan- 
imously determined, in accordance with such recom- 
mendations, that the Plan be further modified as 
follows : 

A. The following-described area is excluded 
from the Hyde Park-Kenwood Urban Renewal proj- 
ect area: 

That portion of the Development Plan of the 
South West Hyde Park Neighborhood Redevelop- 
ment Corporation which is described as the "Ac- 
quisition Area", and which area is situated and 
lies within the following boundary : 

Beginning at a point at the Southeast corner 
of the intersection of East 55th Street and Cot- 
tage Grove Avenue and proceeding south along 
the east line of Cottage Grove Avenue to the 
north line of East 56th Street, thence east along 
the north line of East 56th Street to the west 
line of South Ellis Avenue, thence north' along 
the west line of South Ellis Avenue to the south 
line of East 55th Street, thence west along the 
south line of East 55th Street to the point of 
beginning.

B. The following statement of voluntary objec- 
tives is included in the Plan: 

Voluntary Objectives: 

The rehabilitation of all properties in the project 
area to the following Voluntary Objectives is the 
desired goal for the area. The Voluntary Objectives 
for rehabilitation are not enforceable but are those 
things, over and above the aforementioned "En- 
forceable Standards", which would be required of 
a qualified property owner if he wished to make his 
property eligible for FHA mortgage insurance and 
include but is not limited to the following : 

Properties to be rehabilitated must comply with 
the General Acceptability Requirements of the FHA 
Minimum Property Requirements and meet the 
Objectives of all other requirements as interpreted 
by the FHA, in addition : 

a. In properties having not more than two liv- 
ing units, proposed construction, other than 
repairs, alterations and additions to existing 
structures, shall comply with the Minimum 
Property Requirements for Properties of One 
or Two Living Units. 

b. In properties having three or more living 
units, new structures or additions to existing 
construction, shall comply with all specific re- 
quirements of the Minimum Property Re- 
quirements for Properties of Three or More 
Living Units except that modifications meet- 
ing the Objectives of the MPR are permissive, 
when necessitated by existing conditions 
which are to remain. 

Under Section 220(d) (3) (A), properties shall 
contain not more than 11 living units at comple- 
tion; under 220(d) (3) (B), properties shall con- 
tain 5 or more living units at completion. 

Properties must comply with applicable laws, 
codes, ordinances and deed restrictions. 

The property at the completion of rehabilitation 
must be safe and sound in all physical respects and 
be refurnished and altered to bring the property to 
a desirable marketable condition which will con- 
tinue during the life of the mortgage. The accepta- 
bility of individual properties or projects will be 
determined by the FHA on the basis of the needs 
and merits of each project or case as presented. 

Nonresidential Use. Any nonresidential use of 
the property shall be subordinate to the residential 
use and character of the property. The non-residen- 
tial use must conform to good standards of planning 
and zoning, and should be beneficial, without being 
detrimental, to the residential use of the project, 
and should provide for the dispensing of services 
and the marketing of goods needed by the residen- 
tial tenants of the proposed project as well as the 
neighborhood. 

When appropriate to the class of dwelling, the 
following features of questioned acceptability will 
be considered acceptable: 

a. Access to a required bathroom from any room 
except a bedroom in a living unit of more 
than one bedroom. 

Features in the renewal area which are not 
acceptable in any property: 

a. Access to a habitable room only by passing 
through a bedroom. 

b. One warm air furnace serving more than one 
living unit. 

c. Bathrooms and kitchens serving more than 
one living unit. 



d. Living unit without a complete bathroom 
even though a bathroom outside of the living 
room is available. 

e. Lack of closet for any bedroom. 

f. Habitable room with electric ceiling light 
without wall switch. Habitable room without 
at least one convenience outlet. 

III. 

The Hyde Park-Kenwood Urban Renewal Plan sub- 
mitted to the Community Conservation Board of 
Chicago on April 21, 1958, as modified by this Coun- 
cil's supplemental report of July 28, 1958 and as 
further modified by this second supplemental report, 
is in all respects approved by this Council.

A Report to the Chicago Plan Commission 
Clair M. Roddewig^ Chairman 

FROM 

Ira J. Bach 

Commissioner of City Planning 

September 11, 1958 

I. Subject 

A proposed Urban Renewal Plan submitted by 
the Community Conservation Board for the Hyde 
Park-Kenwood area of 856 acres extending from 
47th Street on the north, the Midway Plaisance 
(59th Street) on the south, Cottage Grove Ave- 
nue on the west and Lake Michigan on the east, 
exclusive of the University of Chicago campus, 
the Illinois Central Railroad right-of-way, the 
the Hyde Park "A" and "B" Slum and Blighted 
Area Project of the Chicago Land Clearance 
Commission, and the acquisition area of the 
Southwest Hyde Park Neighborhood Redevelop- 
ment Corporation Project Area. 

The proposed Plan is for a federally-assisted 
urban renewal project pursuant to the Illinois 
Urban Community Conservation Act and Title 
I of the federal Housing Act of 1949 as amended 
to date. The Plan was approved, in accordance 
with law, by the Hyde Park-Kenwood Community 
Conservation Council on July 21, 1958, and by 
the Community Conservation Board on Septem- 
ber 9, 1958. 

II. The Plan 

The objectives of the Plan are to arrest the 
growth of blight, to improve the quality of 
housing and to provide public facilities adequate 
to the needs of the community. These ends are 
to be achieved through the elimination of con- 
centrations of blighted structures, the redevel- 
opment of cleared land for uses consistent with 
the residential and institutional character of the 
area, and the creation of the conditions and in- 
centives necessary for the private improvement 



November 7, 1958 



UNFINISHED BUSINESS

and rehabilitation of existing residential struc- 
tures. 

The Plan for the project area consists, in gen- 
eral, of five elements : 

1. Encouragement of privately-financed re- 
habilitation of sound structures . 

2. Clearance and redevelopment of concen- 
trated areas of blight. 

3. Acquisition of land for provision of com- 
munity facilities. 

4. Demolition of individual blighted struc- 
tures. 

5. Improvement of arterial and local streets. 

Total acreage to be redeveloped is 111.6 acres, 
or 13% of the gross project area. 60.8 acres are 
to be acquired or vacated and re-used for com- 
munity facilities, institutions and new streets. 
Approximately 50.8 acres are to be acquired or 
vacated and re-used for new private housing and 
business. The specific recommended re-uses are: 

1. Residential — 42.7 acres: 

15.0 acres for high-rise residential with 
maximum developm.ent of 1500 dwelling 
units ; 

19.1 acres for low-rise residential with max- 
imum development of 382 dwelling units; 
8.6 acres for residential parking — approxi- 
mately 1,000 car spaces. 

2. Community facilities — 28.4 acres: 

14.2 acres for local parks ; 

14.2 acres for school purposes — 64 addi- 
tional classrooms. 

3. Commercial — 8.1 acres: 

Primarily for one compact commercial dis- 
trict centering off 53rd Street and Lake 
Park Avenue. 

4. Streets and alleys — 15.2 acres: 

5. Institutional and other public — 17.2 acres 
For expansion of existing, and construction 
of new, public and institutional uses. 

Cottage Grove and Lake Park avenues are to 
be improved in accordance with the standards 
of the Preferential Street Plan. Lake Park Ave- 
nue is to be relocated to the western perimeter 
of the Illinois Central Railroad right-of-way. 
Improvements are also recommended for three 
local collector streets: 51st, 53rd and 55th 
streets. Internal traffic flow is to be reorganized 
through a series of cul-de-sacs, street vacations 
and redevelopment. 

in. Cost and Financing 

Net project cost is estimated at $37,021,918, 
of which $27,766,438 will be financed by a fed- 
eral capital grant. The local share is $9,255,480, 
of which $7,407,725 will be contributed in non- 
cash facilities, such as schools, parks and site 
improvements. The local cash contribution of 
$1,847,755 will be financed from the proceeds of 
the 1957 Community Conservation Bond Fund. 

rv. Comments 

Although the structures in the area are gen- 
erally old, the vast majority are in sound struc- 
tural condition. The useful economic and social 
life of these structures are to be extended 
through a combination of vigorous code enforce- 
ment, improved property maintenance and re- 
habilitation. The standards to be enforced are 
the minimum requirements of the Municipal Code 



and the Zoning Ordinance. Certification of the 
project area for F.H.A. Section 220 mortgage 
insurance will establish the eligibility of prop- 
erty-owners for long-term financing of improve- 
ment loans. This financing assistance will be an 
incentive for additional private investment in 
existing properties. 

New residential construction in the project 
area will also be eligible for financing assistance 
under Section 220 of the National Housing Act. 

As a result of the Plan, the concentrated areas 
of sub-standard structures, including a consider- 
able portion of the excess commercial frontage, 
will be cleared. Re-use proposals and restrictions 
on residential development will reduce over-all 
land coverage as well as improve community 
facility standards. Future commercial develop- 
ment will be restricted primarily to one area 
located adjacent to major traffic arteries. Resi- 
dential areas, consequently, will be protected 
from the types of commercial activity that tend 
to create deleterious effects. Local convenience 
centers are provided outside the general com- 
mercial district but are restricted as to type and 
size by the requirements of the Comprehensive 
Amendment to the Chicago Zoning Ordinance. 

Approximately one-third of the cleared land 
is to be used for expanding school and park area 
and off-street residential parking facilities. 

The over-all effect of the proposed changes in 
land use in connection with the redevolepment of 
cleared land will increase the amount of land 
allocated for (a) residential and related uses 
and (b) public and institutional uses, while (c) 
decreasing the amount of land allocated for com- 
mercial use. These changes will result in a more 
balanced ratio of residential to commercial land 
use, and in a residential community that is bet- 
ter served by open recreational land and com- 
munity services. 

The street proposals have been designed to 
deter heavy traffic through the area by restrict- 
ing continuous traffic flow to the peripheral 
preferential streets and to two north-south and 
east-west streets at half-mile intervals within 
the area. The details of the street and alley 
vacations and dedications will be subject to re- 
view by the Department of City Planning and 
the separate approval of the City Council. 

The specific zoning amendments required to 
effectuate the proposed land use changes and 
controls will also be subject to review by the 
Department of City Planning and separate ap- 
proval by the City Council. 

A total of 4,371 families and 4,752 individuals 
will be displaced by clearance and rehabilitation. 
Relocation of this population will be conducted 
in accordance with the mandatory federal stat- 
utory and administrative requirements to insure 
rehousing in standard dwelling units. The De- 
partment urges that such relocation proceed on 
the basis of availability in order to minimize 
possible personal hardship and in concert with 
the needs and requirements of other vital city 
programs necessitating population displacement. 

V. Conclusions 

The Plan proposed for Hyde Park-Kenwood is 
essentially a limited clearance-rehabilitation pro- 
gram designed to strengthen the residential 
chara,cter of the area through improvement of 
physical conditions, expansion of community 
amenities and new investment. This type of plan 



8524 



JOURNAI^CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



November 7, 1958 



is in accord with general policy statements de- 
veloped by the Chicago Plan Commission. 

1. The appropriateness of Hyde Park-Kenwood 
as a conservation planning area was first 
established in the Master Plan for Residen- 
tial Land Use, Chicago Plan Commission, 
1943. 

2. The proposed strengthening of the residen- 
tial-institutional land use pattern conforms 
to the projected future land use for the area 
as expressed in the Preliminary Compre- 
hensive City Plan of Chicago, Chicago Plan 
Commission, 1946. 

3. The suitability of the proposed Plan for the 
project area is supported by Recommended 
Policies for Redevelopment in Chicago, Chi- 
cago Plan Commission, 1954, in which the 
conservation of the Hyde Park-Kenwood 
area was recommended through a program 
of limited redevelopment and rehabilitation. 

The Plan provides corrective proposals to deal 
with existing deficiencies and blighting elements 
in the community in accord with recognized prin- 
ciples of conservation planning. Hov^ever, it is 
important to the successful execution of the Plan 
that a carefully designed implementation sched- 
ule be formulated and maintained during the 
active phase of the project. 

VI. Recommendation 

The Department of City Planning finds that 
the proposed Urban Renewal Plan for the Hyde 
Park-Kenwood area conforms to the projected 
future development of said area and is in accord 
with sound city planning principles and, there- 
fore, recommends that the Hyde Park-Kenwood 
Urban Renewal Area Project, extending from 
47th Street on the north, the Midway Plaisance 
(59th Street) on the south. Cottage Grove Ave- 
nue on the west and Lake Michigan on the east, 
exclusive of the University of Chicago campus, 
the Illinois Central Railroad right-of-way, the 
Hyde Park "A" and "B" Slum and Blighted Area 
Project, and the acquisition area of the South- 
west Hyde Park Neighborhood Redevelopment 
Corporation Project Area, be approved for con- 
servation in the manner described in the Urban 
Renewal Plan for said Project, dated September 
9, 1958, by the Community Conservation Board.

Tribute Paid to Late Judge Harry M. Fisher. 

Honorable Richard J. Daley, Mayor, presented the 
following proposed resolution: 

Whereas, In the death of Judge Harry M. Fisher 
this city, county and state have lost a most distin- 
guished jurist. The City Council of Chicago joins 
with the bar and the citizens of this community in 
expressing its deep sorrow in the passing of this 
great judge; and 

Whereas, For 46 years Judge Fisher served as a 
judge of the Municipal Court of Chicago and as 
Circuit Judge of this County, 37 of these years in 



the latter capacity. He brought to the bench a keen 
legal mind, tireless energy, and a deep sense of fair- 
ness and justice. He was not a slave to precedent 
and never hesitated to interpret the law in con- 
formity with the changing conditions of the times. 
He died as he would have wished, hard at work in 
his beloved career of public service. He initiated 
many innovations designed to speed up court pro- 
cedures and insure prompt and speedy justice. As 
a civic and religious leader he was widely known 
and universally respected; now, therefore, 

Be It Resolved, By the City Council of the City 
of Chicago, That we sincerely regret the death of 
Judge Fisher and extend to his bereaved family 
our profound sympathy in their great loss; and 

Be It Further Resolved, That this resolution be 
spread of record on the Journal of the Proceedings 
of the City Council and that an engrossed copy be 
presented to the family of Judge Harry M. Fisher. 

Committee consideration was dispensed with by 
unanimous consent, and on motion of Alderman Keane 
(seconded by Alderman Simon) said proposed resolu- 
tion was adopted, unanimously, by a rising vote. 



Tribute Paid to Late Albert W. Harris. 

Honorable Richard J. Daley, Mayor, presented the 
following proposed resolution: 

Whereas, It was with profound sorrow and re- 
gret that the members of this council learned of 
the death at the advanced age of 91 years of Albert 
W. Harris, retired president of the Harris Trust 
and Savings Bank of this city; and 

Whereas, Seventy years ago Mr. Harris became 
associated with the investment banking house of 
N. W. Harris & Company, founded by his father, 
Norman W. Harris, which in 1907 was incorporated 
as the Harris Trust and Savings Bank, now one of 
the outstanding financial institutions of the City. 
Mr. Harris served this institution over the years 
as vice president, president and chairman of the 
board. Due to his financial genius and skillful man- 
agement that bank today is a $700,000,000 institu- 
tion; and 

Whereas, Not only in the financial world was 
Mr. Harris outstanding but also in the civic, phil- 
anthropic and religious fields. He was a trusted 
advisor to the government. During World War I he 
was an advisor to the Treasury Department, and 
took part in the formation of the Federal Reserve 
system, and in the reorganization of banking dur- 
ing the depression. In 1915 with his father he es-, 
tablished the Chicago Community Trust, which later 



November 25, 1958 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC.

grew to be one of the largest private charitable 
foundations in the country, spending millions of 
dollars for worthy charities. In his later years 
Mr. Harris became interested in the work of the 
Chicago Boys Clubs and in 1953 he gave to that 
organization his large estate at Williams Bay, 
Wisconsin, as a camp site. As a layman he was 
active in the work of St. James Methodist Church, 
where he held membership for many years; now, 
therefore. 

Be It Resolved, By the City Council of the City of 
Chicago, That we deeply deplore the passing of 
Mr. Harris and extend to his bereaved family our 
sincere sentiments of sorrow and regret on their 
irreparable loss ; and be it 

Further Resolved, That this resolution be spread 
of record on the Journal of the Proceedings of the 
City Council and that an engrossed copy be pre- 
sented to the family of Mr. Albert W. Harris. 

Committee consideration was dispensed with by 
unanimous consent, and on motion of Alderman Keane 
(seconded by Alderman Despres) said proposed reso- 
lution was adopted, unanimously, by a rising vote.

By unanimous consent Alderman Keane thereupon 
presented the following proposed ordinance:

Chicago:

Tribute Paid to Late Dr. Warren W. Fiirey. 

Honorable Richard J. Daley, Mayor, presented the 
following proposed resolution: 

Whereas, The members of this council were 
grieved by the sudden and unexpected death of Dr. 
Warren W. Furey, one of the city's outstanding 



medical men and educators, who died on Wednes- 
day, November 19, 1958 ; and 

Whereas, Dr. Furey, professor of radiology at 
Stritch Medical School, head of radiology at Mercy 
Hospital and Little Company of Mary Hospital, was 
active throughout the entire field of radiology, 
having served as president of the Radiological 
Society of North America. He was also past presi- 
dent of the Chicago Medical Society, the Tubercu- 
losis Institute of Chicago and Cook County, and the 
Illinois Medical Service and the American College 
of Radiology; and 

Whereas, The contribution which Dr. Furey made 
to humanity, the immediate value which his life 
and work brought to the City of Chicago, and the 
magnitude of the far-reaching effects of his skill 
and his learning and his teaching are immeasurable ; 
now, therefore, 

Be It Resolved, By the City Council of the City of 
Chicago, That we sincerely regret the death of such 
a distinguished medical man as Dr. Furey, and 
extend to his bereaved family our deepest sympathy 
in their great loss ; and

of the sudden death of Rev. Francis W. McPeek, 
for many years executive director of the Commis- 
sion on Human Relations, who passed away on 
November 7, 1958; and 

Whereas, The Rev. Mr. McPeek an ordained Con- 
gregational Christian minister, dedicated his life 
to the service of humanity and assistance to the 
youth not only of Chicago but of the country, hav- 
ing served as chaplain in an institution for juvenile 
offenders in Rahway, New Jersey, as eminent lectur- 
er at the school of journalism of Yale University, as 
chaplain at Elgin State Hospital, and as industrial 
secretary of the Council for Social Action of the 
Congregational Christian Churches; and 

Whereas, His all too short life was spent in the 
service of helping people to live and work together 
in brotherhood and without tensions, hatred, viol- 
ence or prejudice among people; now, therefore, 

Be It Resolved, That the members of the City 
Council, the Mayor, and the people of Chicago 
through their City Council, hereby express their 
deep gratitude to the Rev. Francis W. McPeek for 
his dedication to the cause of their betterment, 
and extend to his wife and children their condol-

shall be printed, executed and delivered bearing 
such lesser rate of interest) until paid, payable 
July 1, 1959, and semiannually thereafter on the

in fact, may be transferred either to a designated 
transferee or to bearer, and the principal of any 
bond so transferred and registered to bearer shall 
thereupon be and become payable to bearer in 
like manner as if such bond had not been registered. 
Registration of any bond as to principal shall not
